15.25-15.55, Stage 2 • Saturday
Following in the footsteps of the 1960's greats, de Bastion is at the forefront of the new Singer Songwriter generation. Over the past 12 months alone, Roxanne has toured with the Wainwright Sisters, Thea Gilmore, grammy nominee Hayes Carll and performed at Glastonbury on the legendary acoustic stage. Roxanne’s forthcoming album, Heirlooms & Hearsay, comes out on May 5th on Nomad Songs. The main inspiration behind it is her grandfather, a pianist from Hungary and survivor of the Second World War, whose story is as incredible as many who suffered (and suffer) a similar fate. Roxanne draws parallels between then and now, exploring how trauma gets passed on through generations and points a finger at society's short-term memory.
