The Folk Forest. Sunday — 12:00
Little Robots began in 2009 when Laura decided to stop making little robots and become one. The band began life with Laura, Jonny Kearney and Lucy Farrell until they messed around, fluffed up and settled down into their proverbial slippers with the current line up of Laura Mary, and Lindy and Lee
They have also toured and recorded with Dolly May Ryall, Ric Booth, Guy Whittaker and Mel McCallaugh.
Little Robots supported NY anti-folk legend, Diane Cluck and drummer Anders Griffen on the Sheffield leg of their British tour. Following their debut New York appearence they have also supported This Frontier Needs Heroes, Zachary Cale, Toby Goodshanks of Moldy Peaches and Rebecca Pronsky on this side of the pond.
Their first self release in 2009, EP, Brother Fox was met with high appraise. It was printed packaged and distributed by Little Robots and after continuously printing, cutting, sticking and packing for 2 years, they decided to release the final edition in 2011. It will be re-released in 2014.
They released a live demo in 2011 and released their first single through Robots Records in 2011, titled The Christmas Song. It is available to buy from Bandcamp.
