'The Broadside Hack' Screening with live performances from Shovel Dance Collective & Broadside Hacks

We are excited to present an evening of film and live music, featuring two of the most exciting collectives from the burgeoning UK folk scene today, Broadside Hacks and Shovel Dance Collective.


‘The Broadside Hack’ is a short documentary film from British Underground exploring the influence of traditional folk songs on a new generation of musicians. The documentary was made in collaboration with Broadside Hacks and features Shovel Dance Collective, Thyrsis, Caroline and Boss Morris. It was filmed at Real World Studios in Box, Wiltshire in August 2021 and is part of British Underground’s ‘Looking for a New England’ series of showcases.

Shovel Dance Collective

A group of nine musicians exploring the folk traditions of these islands (and beyond). Nurturing the history of the source material, they bring sensibilities drawn from drone, improvisation, and metal. In so doing, aiming to uncover proto-feminist narratives and queer histories, and to make heard the voices of the working people that created and create the wealth of the world.

Broadside Hacks

Broadside Hacks means many different things. It is a sprawling collective of young musicians who meet regularly for casual, open-to-all jam sessions at a South London pub. It is their live iteration, a more fixed – but nevertheless still flexible – group of players who have been performing acclaimed shows across Britain for the last year, bringing in local musicians as they go. There is also the Broadside Hacks record label, which put out the compilation ‘Songs Without Authors Vol. 1’ last September: a diverse array of left field artists injecting fresh life into songs whose original authors have been lost in time. Beyond even that, there is the film ‘The Broadside Hack’, exploring a wider network of London musicians employing traditional folk influences in vastly different ways.
