'The Circle is Unbroken'
Trembling Bells and Mike Heron
in their first fully collaborative concert.
'Trembling Bells' are an acclaimed Glasgow based indie folk rock band that reference late 1960s psychedelia and British folk revival acts such as Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band.
Lavinia Blackwall's soaring vocal style has drawn comparisons to Sandy Denny, and she took part in the recent tour 'The Lady A Homage to Sandy Denny' which was televised by the BBC. This tour ‘The Circle is Unbroken’ follows on from the release of Trembling Bells’ acclaimed collaborative album and tour with Bonnie Prince Billy called 'The Marble Downs' on Honest Jon’s last year.
Mike Heron is a Scottish singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, best known for his work in the Incredible String Band.
The group built a considerable following, especially within the British counterculture in the 60's and 70's and were pioneers of psychedelic folk, integrating a wide variety of traditional music forms, blending rock, folk and world music into an atmospheric whole.
A previously unreleased Incredible String Band concert ‘Live at The Filmore 1968’ was released on Hux this year.
Trembling Bells have worked with Mike Heron on a number of occasions and there is a natural kinship between them. ‘The Circle Is Unbroken’ debuted to glowing reviews at Celtic Connections in January, and celebrates Mike Heron’s legacy in his 70th year.
The concert highlights their musical sympathies, as they exchange material in an evening comprised of classic String Band songs, and the contemporary tunes of The Trembling Bells.
Celtic Connections review - The Herald: **** “Trembling Bells and Heron's first fully collaborative outing made for a magical, convincing match”
The Guardian: **** “An intriguing double bill, matching one of the originators of the experimental British psych-folk scene against its most interesting current exponents.”
