King Creosote

Saturday 18 May, 8.00pm

Norwich Cathedral

Fresh off the back of his new album, I DES, Kenny Anderson (aka King Creosote), has developed a reputation for his goosebump-inducing brand of folk-pop.

Since the mid-late 1990s, King Creosote has released over 100 records, and his songs have been covered and performed by artists including Simple Minds and Patti Smith. 

His latest album is a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist and co-producer Derek O’Neill. It digs deep into his previous work – revisiting and recycling lyrics, home-made tapes, half-spun songs – and continues his quest to navigate mortality, ardour, stormy waters, the moon in the sky, and the East Neuk of Fife. Its kaleidoscopic musical terrain explores vibraphones, accordions, e-bows and samplers, tied together through synthesisers and his ethereal and everyday lyrics.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
