Richard James & The Gentle Good - this Tuesday @ Telford’s Warehouse, Chester
A quick recap of details for this Tuesday night.
- It’s our final live music event until September, so a perfect and timely opportunity to witness one of Wales’ finest musicians of recent years celebrate an album of subtle, heartbroken wonders (‘Pictures In The Morning’ - out now on Recordiau Gwymon).
- Our support artist, The Gentle Good, can weave stunning sunsets of the soul from his voice and expertly picked acoustic guitar. His most recent album, Tethered For The Storm, glitters with folkish gems and was shortlisted for last year’s Welsh Music Prize.
- Ben ‘Soundhog’ Hayes returns to our DJ’ing ranks for the 1st time in a couple of months, fresh from a musical sojourn in France and a return to bastard pop that has put YouTube under considerable strain. He’ll be playing old and ace records for us. There are few better.
- As will Elin Bach, of course. Radiating a smile we can barely contain within the beams of the Warehouse roof. Cannot. Wait.
- Grey ‘n’ Pink Records return, too, this time with a stall of excellent 2nd hand LP’s & singles in the top bar. This should make it considerably easier for you to see where they are and see what they’ve got tucked away in those magical crates.
- Set times will run very much like this:
19:30 - 20:30hrs Adam Walton (DJ set)
20:30 - 21:00hrs The Gentle Good (Live)
21:00 - 21:30hrs Elin Bach (DJ set)
21:30 - 22:15hrs Richard James + band (Live)
22:15 - 23:30hrs Elin Bach + Ben Hayes (DJ set)
- Tickets can still be pre-ordered & picked up on the door from here:
You can pay on the door, too. ( £6, as opposed to £5 if you buy in advance from the link above or the venue itself. )
- You can hear sample tracks from the artists here:
- Thanks to Marc Riley & Cerys Matthews at 6Music for their support. Great, great shows obviously presented and compiled by music-lovers. They’d be two of the first names on my honours list. To be fair, my ‘honours list’ would be a very unlikely development.
- I do hope you can make it. We have brought some phenomenal artists to Chester since November. But you - the audience - are as important to the equation as anyone else. Your support has been fantastic and very much appreciated. I’d better go. I’m starting to weep! What the heck am I going to do for the next 3 months?
