Katie & The Carnival to perform on Come Dine with me- Wed night on channel 4!
The ever energetic and engaging group hailing from Belfast; Katie & The Carnival will be performing on Channel 4’s Come Dine with me tonight!
Fronted by Katie Richardson, who transcends the stereotype of the quirky female vocalist, with her remarkable stage presence, soulful voice and joyous wit. The bands music is soulful and harmoniously driven with influences from folk, pop, jazz, rock and a little bit of dark cabaret! (Katie creates the kind of smokey jazz that Norah Jones might make if you snuck a load of vodka in her diet coke!).
There is a heavy emphasis from the band of the importance on putting on a show and giving the audience an experience for the eyes as well as their ears. Their live shows have been described as electric and exciting. The strong word of mouth endorsements of such have been echoing the Belfast streets meandering its way throughout Ireland. Proving that there is every reason to get excited about this band.
Katie has worked with many other artists in Ireland such as Duke Special, Foy Vance and The Salt Flats.
Katie and the Carnival recorded and arranged the track ‘Bring me Sunshine’ for a Dale Farm advert, which began its TV run in the Summer of 2011. Link to the TV ad on YouTube can be found here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkxvwQ3C9kw
