Saturday Night saw the return of the Camden Crawl Dublin after its success of last year, with slightly different venues and still a shed load of great music to be had.

One of the first acts I saw and probably one of the highlights of the weekend was Little Bear. They played the Unitarian Church on Saturday night at about 8pm a relatively early slot in the festival.

Little Bear: The few and far between.

Little Bear gave the perfect performance especially for their venue it was atmospheric and measured delivered to an absolutely silent crowd. In fact one of the best things about using a church for a venue is it stops the crowd talking through out the show creating probably the best atmosphere in a venue for the festival. Little Bear deliver their own brand of folk/rock heavily laden with harmonies, creating an atmosphere that draws the crowd in even if you have never heard a single song before. They were the perfect start to the festival setting the bar very high for the rest of the acts I had planned to see. They have moments where they sound like fleet foxes and that strand of American Folk, however the influence of Irish folk and rock bleeds in giving it something extra.

Id only really heard their song ‘Id Let You Win’ before after their fantastic performances at Other Voices Derry and Other Voices London, but it was enough to make them a must see at Camden Crawl 2013.

Apparently they are also lovely lads as my mates had the pleasure of meeting them after Echo and The Bunnymen later in the night and they got two thumbs up for being a bit of craic.
