Laura Cannell's Modern Ritual XIII Feat. Stewart Lee

Nature Unwrapped/Luminate

‘The raw beauty of her melodies glimmer through prickly thickets of stark and dissonant chordal drones’ The Wire

‘this music feels ancient, it also feels brutally alive, as if a giant was waking from long slumbers, about to make its way in the world’ Guardian


Laura Cannell’s Modern Ritual is ancient, modern, experimental, real, fictional, personal, folkloric. Her evolving series has become a unique platform for premiering works that sit outside the contemporary mainstream.

This, the thirteenth Modern Ritual, will interact with our year-long nature unwrapped theme for 2020, with works and installations evoking real and fictional landscapes, as well as the inextricable link between human ritual and environmental threat.

Laura is excited to present an incredible line up including artists from the UK and the US, presenting premieres of brand new and highly-anticipated collaborations.

Watch this space and our social media channels for line-up announcements.

Laura Cannell at Kings Place

Straddling the worlds of experimental, folk, chamber, early & medieval music, performer/composer Laura Cannell is a unique and important artist whose singular vision sets her apart from her contemporaries, whilst her music exists as a culturally vital exploration of the link between medieval, traditional and modern musical idioms.

As founder of the independent record label Brawl Records and creator/curator of the Modern Ritual performance series, Laura has built an impressive and nurturing platform for the release and performance of music that sits outside of the contemporary mainstream.

Now based in rural East Anglia, Laura’s semi-composed, semi-improvised compositions draw on the emotional influences of the landscape and explore the spaces between early and experimental music that is rooted in but not tethered to the past, but rather forges a new space for her minimalist chamber music.
