Faeland

Original uplifting folk-pop music with a touch of the mystical.

The music is beautiful, enchanting, uplifting, technically impressive and extremely accessible. Faeland have audiences singing along and being moved instantaneously, regardless of whether or not you have heard their music before; There is something in the words and melodies which goes deeper than the everyday, touching on the mystical and the unspoken. The songs are performed on acoustic guitars, double bass, accordion, banjo, charango, violins, lush vocals and Celtic harp.

Imagine the naturalness and earth of Martha Tilston combined with the instantly appeal of Fleetwood Mac, plus all the heart and sensuality of a modern day Kate Bush.
Background Faeland are a folk-pop band from Stroud & Bristol, UK. In 2018 Faeland founders Rebecca & Jacob took a professional leap of faith and released their debut album ‘All My Swim’. The album quickly gained support and acclaim from BBC 6Music, Uncut Magazine, Shire Folk Magazine, BBC Introducing and a host of others; acclaim of which is almost unheard of for a band’s debut release. The first 2 singles earnt radio play and praise from Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe (BBC 6 Music), BBC Introducing and BBC Scotland, among many others.

Faeland’s music is a beautiful selection of original, modern folk compositions influenced by music from both sides of the Atlantic. Their songs give the duo’s personal spin on classic
themes of humanity, such as love, healing, and magic. Despite tackling difficult themes and life experiences, there is a strong vein of optimism running through the music of Faeland; as Rebecca says they are “fully committed to making music that changes lives for the better and adds something good to human existence”. Key musical influences include classic artists such as Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, Nick Drake and Paul Simon, alongside more modern stars like First Aid Kit, Gillian Welch/ David Rawlings, Bon Iver, R.E.M., Nick Mulvey and Hem.
With nature and humanity’s relationship to the natural world being such a big inspiration for Faeland’s music, Jacob explains their unusual name – “we are named after Failand, a countryside village near us that connects us with the land around our home and our favourite woodland. The spelling change to “Fae” hints at the magical/mystical/other as well as the transcendental nature of their music.

 

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
