Doors 7pm, the music will start at approximately 7:30pm
The BLACK FEATHERS –‘Mesmerising and stunning in equal measures – gorgeous close harmonies, two voices paired to perfection’.
When The Black Feathers last appeared at Town Hall Live, in August 2015, they were just about to release their debut album ‘Soaked to the Bone’. The album met with critical claim on radio and the UK Music press. One year later they released a stunning live album ‘Live at the Convent’.
The Black Feathers are Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler, who draw their influence from a number of wells, with Americana, folk and indie rock sensibilities co-existing comfortably in their musical world, with Ray’s guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands. The pure emotion and subtle timing of their song delivery is as evident as the enjoyment radiating from their on stage chemistry.
The duo got together in 2012 and have been busy touring ever since, enticing and captivating audiences as they go. In 2014 they released their debut EP ‘Strangers We Meet’ and later that year embarked on a seven week tour of America.
They followed that up last year with a two month stint in the States and also supported Eddi Reader on her Irish tour. They were busy throughout 2016 and it would have been easy to rest on their laurels, but instead have been busy working on new material, which they are planning to release as a set of 3 EP’s before the end of this year.
Supporting will be PAUL McCLURE, ‘The Rutland Troubadour’. Paul is an incredibly talented songwriter with big catchy melodies. His songs are at times very humourous, rebellious, sometimes very sad, but always honest. Earlier in the year he toured with his band, The Local Heroes, but now he is back playing solo. His material mirrors his personality, confident, warm, original, individual and guaranteed to make you smile.
Also on the bill will be KATE ELLIS, an American singer song writer who was born in Louisiana, raised in New York and now based in London. In June this year Kate released her debut album ‘Carve Me Out, which was described as ‘Haunting and beautiful – a soulful album, brand new yet classically timeless. Thick Nanci Griffith with a modern twist’ – Lyric Magazine Check out The Black Feathers Official Video for 'All for One' here

Our Autumn programme continues on Saturday 7th October 2017 with:
THE GOOD LOVELIES
Audiences have been falling in love with the Good Lovelies for the past 10 years. Winners of the 2010 Juno Award for Roots Album of the Year, and nominees for the same award in 2012, as well as 4-time winners at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Good Lovelies have been making waves across Canada. Touring life also takes these women across the United States, the UK, Europe and Australia.
The aptly names Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore. All of them best friends, the Ontario-based trio relies on impeccable vocals, winsome songwriting and on stage banter drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road and at home.
Since joining forces in 2006, their rain or shine outlook and undeniable mutual respect have helped the trio weather a decade of constant touring through countless theatres, folk clubs and festivals.
What keeps the Good Lovelies making music together is not just their uncanny vocal compatibility; it's their unshakeable friendships, which supports each member contributing to the songwriting in distinct ways.
