Mae Karthauser (of The Midnight Fairground fame) boasts a collection of vibrant and shadowy circus-esque songs that tell vivid stories of wayward characters both human and animal. Her rich and acrobatic voice are mingled together with the bounce of humming organ keys, the gentle slinky cries of clarinet and guitar, the sensuous swoops and slides of an old cello, a warm oompah bass and the marching rolls of half a dozen drumsticks; and anecdotes are delivered with a distinctive twist of humour and come eccentrically woven. Whether alone, or surrounded by a troupe of anything up to ten musicians, dancers, acrobats and clowns, she has audiences nestled playfully in the palm of her hand, as she strokes each one of them gently on the head, grinning like a badly behaved child in the chocolate aisle.

Mae currently resides in a caravan on a hill-top farm in Devon, overlooking the sea and moorland with her two cats and a herd of Friesian cattle. She can often be spotted performing on market squares in towns across Europe with her red fairground organ, beguiling passers by…
