The velvet sheep presents – Maud the moth + The Silver Reserve + Beck Stacey

19 April @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm



The Velvet Sheep presents ‘Moth to the flame – a candlelit soiree’.

After performing in Roadburn and Primavera Sound in 2023, and ahead of her support of Chelsea Wolfe’s album presentation in Heaven (London), Maud the moth will be performing an intimate candlelit concert in The Black Swan, in York on the 19th of April

Maud the Moth is the solo project of Spanish-born and Scotland-based pianist, singer and songwriter Amaya López-Carromero. Maud the Moth serves as Amaya’s alter ego: a séance-like conduit through which to process personal life experiences, and in particular themes of rootlessness, identity and trauma. Stylistically, Maud the moth uses her classical training as a platform upon which her eclectic songwriting and cathartic solo live performances rest. With the usage of live looping, Amaya weaves sonic tapestries riddled with distorted or effected pianos and driven by an enigmatic and deeply moving voice.

Joining her will be The Silver Reserve, weaving a melancholy and fiercely personal web of honest, beautiful dark-folk, often using loops and effects to create a patient, hypnotic drama that is entirely immersive.

Our special guest for the evening is Beck Stacey, who’s dark, witchy folk-tales and captivating performance will ensure this is a soiree absolutely not to be missed 🙂
