Pavey Ark celebrate the launch of their debut album ‘Close Your Eyes and Think of Nothing’ in the sublime setting of Hull’s Middleton Hall. Following it’s £9m refurbishment, Middleton Hall is a truly world-class performance space with acoustics to match. Playing with full string section and special guests, expect a spell-binding evening of acoustic music, lighting and visuals.

Pavey Ark are a fast-rising alternative-folk band from Hull. Atmospheric vocals and strings glide over fingerpicked guitar, melodic bass and complex percussion. The result is a lush folk-inspired sound that has established the band as one of the must see acts in their region. They have secured major UK festivals slots at Glastonbury, Cornbury, Bearded Theory, Dear Shed and Moseley Folk Festival. With headline shows booked around the UK, 2020 is set to be a big year for the band and this will be their biggest Hometown show yet.

Influences such as Nick Drake, Radiohead, Rodriguez have inspired Pavey Ark’s debut album released on 20th March 2020. The album will be available at Middleton Hall on extremely limited edition numbered vinyl and CD.

Uncut Magazine

“A striking debut” 7/10

Folk Radio

“Pavey Ark set themselves up as a simple folk band then pull the rug out from under your feet. A call to arms from a band that demands to be heard. It is a perfect antidote for these uncertain times”
