With her striking voice and strong Russian and Ingush heritage, Daria Kulesh is a rising star and a unique character on the UK folk scene. Her debut album Eternal Child was described as “phenomenal” and named runner-pp in Best Album of 2015 from a Female Artist by FolkWords, among numerous other accolades. Her 2017 album Long Lost Home has won multiple awards in the UK and in Russia, including LCM Album of the Year. It has enjoyed national radio play and rave reviews calling it a “triumph”, a “masterpiece” and “a definite contender for the best album of 2017”. Mike Harding praised the The Moon and the Pilot as "one of the most beautiful new songs of the last ten years". There is much excitement building around her third album - Earthly Delights.
Daria's performance at the Stables is part of her Earthly Delights album launch tour and she is accompanied by Tristan Seume - a phenomenal guitarist, described by Gordon Giltrap as "one of the finest of the new acoustic generation".
The new album - Earthly Delights - is a grateful and playful exploration of human nature: of love, desire, curiosity, ambition and other urges that drive us, both physical and spiritual. It retells and twists fairy tales, episodes from history, urban legends - rich old stories that are timeless, ever relevant and relatable.
