DoveTales & Katie Spencer

Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 8 PM – 11 PM

DoveTales are fronted by chief vocalists and songwriters, Stef Rose (formerly of The Sylvias and Wild Ginger) and Happy Mondays/Hippy Mafia guitarist Johnny Evans. With their roots in Scandinavia and Mancunia respectively, the pair’s cultural exchange of contrasting, yet complimentary vocal styles, lyrical turns-of-phrase and artistic-inspirations shape the heart of DoveTales’ nuanced palette. Accompanied by the capable rhythmic pedigree of drummer Chris Joyce (perhaps best known for his work with the Durutti Column, The Mighty Wah!, and Simply Red), plus former Hollie Cook bassist Victor “Fela” Freeman on bass, the band come together with one pure resonance to land upon a a sound of soaring fullness and warming depth.
Having first met through previous project The Sylvias back in 2008, for Stef, Johnny and Chris, in many ways DoveTales represents a coming together of old friends with a newfound sense for musical adventure. �
Supporting the likes of the Happy Mondays, Sophie Ellis Bexter and Mark Ronson, the trio played shows to many adoring audiences,

Wpnderful to have Stef Rose singing on our door step once again

“A compelling mix of rock, harmony, country and life”


First saw Katie Supporting Nick Harper at the Trades club in Hebden Bridge. Following a wonderful set looked her up and was not surprised …

“Katie’s guitar playing has echoes of my dear friend the late great Bert Jansch. Like a musical weaver she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar’s strings and produces little tapestries of song.”
Ralph McTell

“The way Katie plays is never contrived, showy or imitative; it sounds true … a world-class folk guitarist”- fRoots

“Great discoveries are always a pleasure and Katie Spencer’s debut album Weather Beaten is a grand pleasure” – RnR Magazine
