In characteristically unexpected contrast to the full-band, full-bodied pop sound of 2017’s Swimming in Mercury, Boo Hewerdine’s new album Before seeks to capture songs at their earliest, arguably purest point of creation: before too much thought creeps in. Hewerdine then enlisted Swedish musical polymath Gustaf Ljunggren, on Dulcitone, Indian harmonium, Mellotron, langspil (a traditional Icelandic zither) and other outré instruments, to respond instinctually in kind. This intriguing duo journey continues here.
Since releasing her debut EP Wolf back in September 2018, Katherine Priddy has been quietly gaining notoriety and turning all the right heads. The EP quickly amassed radio plays from an array of DJ’s including Gideon Coe, Mark Radcliffe, Janice Long & Tom Robinson, all jumping on-board and championing the release. The great Richard Thompson named it as his ‘Best Thing I’ve Heard All Year 2018’ in MOJO Magazine and chose Katherine as his tour support in Ireland in August 2019.
A limited number of additional tickets will be released through via the Tron Theatre Box Office from November 24th.
