With the release of the new album, Abandoned Love (4 stars in the Guardian), these guys are set to be the band of 2010. And in the glorious Bush Hall, this gig is not to be missed.
TREMBLING BELLS ::
Trembling Bells are a Glasgow based band who seek to reanimate the mythic landscapes of Great Britain via a love for Traditional Folk, Early music and canonical Rock.
Trembling Bells have just finished recording their second album, Abandoned Love, for Honest Jon's records. Trembling Bells effortlessly combine and personalise these superficially disparate musical forms generating a sound that is saturated in the myths and mysteries of their native terrain but also startlingly original.
"Trembling Bells are my kind of band." - Joe Boyd
Mark Fry & The A.Lords ::
For years, psych-folk legend Mark Fry has been regarded by many as the very epitome of acid-folk and the Holy Grail for collectors of rare vinyl, copies of his cult classic 1972 album Dreaming with Alice have been known to change hands for $4000 and more. Meanwhile, he was living the quiet life of an artist, until a web search revealed the album he recorded as a 19 year-old had become one of the world's most sought-after records. Mark emerges from the shadows to perform his first London gig in over 30 years. For this auspicious occasion, Mark will be accompanied by young Dorset-based band The A.Lords. Mark, and the talented five-piece - including guitar, bouzouki, accordion, harp and flute instrumentation - will combine fresh takes on songs from Dreaming with Alice with a tantalising glimpse of his new work.
The Raghu Dixit Project ::
The Raghu Dixit Project is an open house for musicians, dancers, poets, lyricists and artistes from different genres to come together, collaborate and create a dynamic sound and expression. The Raghu Dixit Project has a constantly evolving sound due to the different musicians collaborating with Raghu Dixit.
Raghu's music is a seamless amalgamation of Indian ethnic music and sounds from around the world befittingly labeling his music as Indo World Folk Rock. His lyrics though intense, are simple and speak about every common man's emotions and experiences.
The Raghu Dixit Project just released its debut self titled album through Vishal & Shekhar Music and the album is out in stores currently.
