Growing up Iran, childhood trips to the mountains with her father gave Shirin a taste for adventure and a sense of freedom. Now living in London with a young family, Shirin shares her love for the mountains and culture of Iran through Persian Pursuits, running expeditions to Damavand, Iran’s highest peak. The talk will include a screening of Damavand – an Iranian Dream, which follows a ski-mountaineering team from the UK, led by Shirin, and examines the pivotal role mountaineering played in her upbringing.
Tuesday 12th January
Singer-songwriter Katey Brooks’ unique sound epitomizes the culturally diverse environment in which she grew up. Born and raised between Bristol, London and Arizona to musical parents, the Indie Award nominee is best described as a female Hozier, with all the haunting intensity and every bit of the soul.
With a “voice to melt glaciers” (Venue Magazine) Brooks is at home anywhere she can take her guitar. From the London 2012 Olympics to Glastonbury Festival, from WOMAD to Abbey Road, Brooks’ “devastating vocal talent” (Just Music That I Like) has garnered her admirers from across the spectrum of the industry, seeing her feature on tracks with Paloma Faith, Imelda May, The Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd and Brian May – not to mention sharing the bill with acts like Newton Faulkner, Ghostpoet, Deaf Havana and Mystery Jets.
Fast becoming a radio favourite, “not to be missed” (Time Out) Brooks’ music has been hailed on BBC Radio 1, 2 and 6, and she’s recently been added to the Starbucks playlist worldwide. The haunting, ethereal sound of her latest I Fought Lovers EP is prelude to the sonic largesse of future releases, as she heads to the studio to record her new album with a few of Britain’s finest.
Having led a fascinating life with a vivid cast of characters, Brooks takes to the road often, to draw inspiration from the people she meets. The writing for her current album began in the chaos of London life, continuing on tour in the dusty expanse of Australia, and finding its completion on the side of a beautiful little mountain in the Welsh wilderness. Now under the wing of UK based label Abandon Music Group, Brooks is in the studio recording a group of fresh new songs.
