House of Figs

House of Figs is a storm-calming collaboration between poet Beth Calverley (The Poetry Machine) and composer/producer Bethany M. Roberts.

Ideas that begin as conversations over cups of tea find their way into conjured words poured into Beth’s typewriter as Bethany improvises loops of banjo, violin, voice and piano. Each piece is honed until the layers weave seamlessly together to create a sanctuary for patient words expressing their shared gratitude for every day wonders.

They will release an EP in 2021 to celebrate Beth Calverley’s debut published collection Brave Faces & Other Smiles (out now through Verve Poetry Press).

For fans of: Simon & Garfunkel, Alabaster DePlume, Kae Tempest, Joni Mitchell
