THE DIAMOND FAMILY ARCHIVE

TDFA SET UP.jpg

The Diamond Family Archive is a unique roving ensemble based around the guitar playing and song writing of Laurence Collyer. Holed up in a converted shed in rural Devon, the DFA create and coax songs from all manner of instruments and vintage equipment. Personal and pastoral themes are mixed to create sparse and fluttering arrangements. The sounds of the rain, the old mill leat outside the door and the ever present ominous rookery in the nearby slate quarry all find their way onto recordings.

The Diamond Family Archive create a mesmeric live experience with a melding of acoustic guitars, FX pedals, drums, tape delay, loops, belows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys, broken symbols and vocals. This layering of sound evolves into a journey, never to be retrodden.

Drinks available of an interesting Ilk.

Donations on the door (suggestion £7)
