Low Lily with St. Alto

07 July 2017 19:30

Low Lily with St. Alto
Boston based string and vocal trio Low Lily explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves together a unique brand of acoustic music.

Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin), and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle) are masterful players with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England, and Old Time Appalachian sounds.

When you combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements you get music that is rooted - yet contemporary.

 “A really reliable act who compellingly yet unassumingly mix contemporary folk and bluegrass sensibilities with a sensitive use of their keen musicianship.” Fatea

Low Lily are supported tonight by St Alto. Phil is a very gifted song writer with a passionate delivery and is joined tonight by the full band. They were introduced to us as part of the recent BBC H&W Introducing show in St George’s Hall and we were blown away by them and are sure that you will enjoy their unique approach.

Amanda Pearcy and Band

01 September 2017 19:30

Amanda Pearcy and Band
We’ve been trying to bring Amanda Pearcy to Music in the Hall for some time, and to have finally succeeded this time (and with her band as well) is ace news.

Her music is rooted in her hardscrabble history, authentically grounded in her earthy soulful voice. Testifying to her southeast Texas upbringing, with the regions multicultural mix, its Gulf of Mexico coastline, and its shared border with Louisiana’s Acadania,

Amanda’s songs carry a sense, and the sensuality, of the South, weaving themes of home and its loss; love, both surrendered to, and longed for, the ties that bind old friends; and our human experience’s collective memory.

Don’t miss this lady, believe us, another special Music in the Hall awaits us all.

Our main support this evening is from a local favourite performer Bryn Teeling who is performing with the River Thieves. Bryn has a new EP recently released and is an artist that always attracts attention when he plays.

Amy LaVere and Will Sexton

29 September 2017 19:30

Amy LaVere and Will Sexton
Music in the Hall presents a return visit of the couple whom, it appears from the conversation’s we’ve had, the whole town is waiting to welcome back.

Friday 29th is the date to be uplifted to a special place once again by the fabulous Amy LaVere, with husband Will Sexton, when they return to St Georges Hall.

A burgeoning star, Amy LaVere is becoming renowned worldwide for her songwriting, bass playing, and vocals. She sings with a sweet, haunting voice that can turn on a dime from innocent to lusty (“Norah Jones with an added Cyndi Lauper element” — Mojo Magazine; “Spookiness suits her” — New York Times).

Whether playing as a duo with her husband Will Sexton or with retro-country sensation Motel Mirrors, she’s an inventive, thoughtful singer-songwriter who has crowds throughout the US and Europe smitten.

If you missed them last year, make sure you buy your tickets early this time!

Our main support this month is a young singer songwriter who started by playing in Bewdley pubs at the age of 13 and is now getting a reputation around the country as a tremendous live performer. Esther Turner was the first singer on stage at our inaugural Music in the Hall concert in 2014 and we welcome her back.

This is an evening we are eagerly anticipating.
