*About the Magic Lantern*
Drawing on a wide range of influences from folk, jazz, and contemporary music, The Magic Lantern is dedicated to remedying the fear and anxiety present in us all. Musician Jamie Doe draws on a wide range of sounds and textures from folk finger-picking to pulsating grooves, lush string quintet lyricism to narcotic late-night saxophone jams, all united by Jamie’s instantly recognisable voice and inimitable song-writing style. Recently featured on BBC Radio 1, and receiving praise from The Guardian, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 2, and BBC 6 Music, Jamie brings the magic of The Magic Lantern to Oxford’s newest stage.
