Live Music Session #71 – Matt Owens (Noah & The Whale) + NASH

Matt Owens March 20 Tupp WEB

You know you are doing something right when promotors and venues of the scale of SoP and The Tuppenny are attracting artists of the calibre of Matt Owens, artists with 2 top 10 albums (plus 2 top 20 ones) to their name….

Matt is a British singer-songwriter and musician, who came to prominence as one of the founder members of indie-folk band Noah and the Whale, and for fronting Rock’n’Roll band Little Mammoths.
Releasing four albums, Noah and the Whale achieved huge success in the UK and overseas, selling over one million albums in the UK alone. The band toured the world between 2006 and 2015, playing hundreds of festivals, including Austin City Limits, Fuji Rocks and Lollapalooza, as well as touring with the likes of Arcade Fire, Bahamas, and Laura Marling.

February 2019 saw the release of Matt’s debut solo album, “Whiskey and Orchids” to widespread critical acclaim including a 5 star review in Maverick Magazine. It is an album that sits closest to “Americana” with its rich, lyrical storytelling, shot through with gallow’s humour, combined with Matt’s return to his beloved acoustic guitar, betraying hints of favourite artists Neil Young and Warren Zevon. Nigel Stonier produced the album which featured Tom Waits’ drummer Michael Blair, Thea Gilmore, Carleigh Aikins from Bahamas, and Robert Vincent.
Local support comes in the fine shape of NASH, aka Gary Nash, who is known more for playing drums and percussion with Richard Wileman & Amy Fry, guitar and vocals with AT-IT and The three of Us. NASH has embarked on his own songwriting and performing adventure. The RUN and RUN Acoustic albums are a culmination of almost 3 years of work and feature skilled and impassioned folk and americana songs

Live Music Session #33 – Kid Calico & The Astral Ponies

Coming up in our second October session – a stripped down, scrubbed-up and suitably intimate show especially for The Tuppenny. Not only are the guys expanding their set with some special songs, they will be bringing a hat load of friends, for this gig doubles as Kid Calico himself’s birthday!

Original olde time music hall, 60’s psychedelia, and new-world country rock, riding in with a grin (and possibly tank-tops) from the borders of Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.

Music for people seeking foot tapping thrills, heart tugging anthems, daring circus ditties and Mexican waltzes proven to cause ankle injuries.

Full details here.

Live Music Session #27 – Larkham & Hall + Canute’s Plastic Army

Due to illness, Larkham & Hall had to cancel their appearance at this show (we rebooked them for September), so Canute’s Plastic Army stepped up to headline, and the wonderful Sumita opened proceedings. Legends!
