Birds of Chicago - Coming to Town Hall Live Kirton
TOWN HALL LIVE
OUR NEXT CONCERT IS ON
BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 7TH MAY
BIRDS OF CHICAGO
In so many ways we are a word weary culture, ever searching for ways to communicate in fewer and fewer syllables. Our on line, blogged out, Yor tubed attention spans are truncated and fragmented like never before, BIRDS OF CHICAGO the collective centred around Jeremy Lindsay (aka JT Nero) and Allison Russell, reassert the simple notion that beautiful words and music can still tap deep veins of emotion. The band were formed in 2012, when Nero began writing for his vocal star muse Russell. Both were accomplished singer song writers of their own, Jeremy with his band, JT & The Clouds and Allison with the acclaimed roots outfit Po'Girl, but together there was an unmistakable chemistry. JT had found the perfect voice for his rock and roll psalms, whilst Allison moved from being the primary songwriter to interpreter. Both JT & The Clouds and Po'Girl played Town Hall Live in the early days and Birds of Chicago last played Kirton in 2013. In the five years since, the band have developed a fervent following across America, touring 200 dates a year, sometimes as a five piece band and sometimes as a four piece. They have released four albums and they are back in the UK to promote their latest CD 'Love in Wartime' which is released in on May 4th, and excellent it is too. In addition to Jeremy on guitar and vocals and Allison on banjo, clarinet and vocals, the band will be made up of Deren Ney (guitar), Chris Merrill (bass) and Nick Chambers (drums) Check out a video of their song American Flowers Support will come from local artist Luke Todd. With poignant lyricism in his songs, Luke conveys his thoughts in a way that capture how many of us feel, but rarely find the way to express.
Advance Tickets are £13.50 and can be obtained from the One Stop store in Kirton, from Brian on 01652 649230. or firstname.lastname@example.org or here
Venue: Town Hall, Market Square, Kirton in Lindsey, N Lincs, DN21 4LZ
Then on Friday 1st June ELLES BAILEY
headlines 'Elles Bailey and her band play music that crosses genres, blending roots sounds with blues and soul'. Bristol based Elles has a talent for seamlessly weaving roots, blues and rock, with a contemporary edge. After releasing 2 EP's in 2016, she released her debut album, 'Wildfire' in September 2017. The album attracted 5 star reviews across the music press, and the lead single from it was supported by BBC Radio 2. Elles recorded the album at the world famous Blackbird studios in Nashville with top producer Brad Nowell. It features some of Nashville's top musicians and was 'blended' back in the UK. The result is a unique coming together of trans-Atlantic styles. Elles will perform with her band that includes Joe Wilkins on lead guitar, Zak Raymond on bass and Tom Gilkes on drums, with Elles trademark husky vocals providing the lead. Supporting Elles will be Bridlington singer song writer Gracie Falls, who in 2016 won the UK Unsigned Artist Award.
