Description


The Mechanicals Band plus support Sunday 11th August 2019 1700-1900 We are delighted to welcome back the Mechanicals Band who played to full & enthralled houses at the Magic Lantern in November & March They are a folk group who enjoy setting their favourite poems to music. The group has a lush, string based sound (violin, viola and double bass) topped off with tasteful drums and percussion & the acoustic guitar and vocals of songwriter Wes Finch. FATEA reviewed their first, Shakespearean themed batch of songs as : “A gem of an album, combining bittersweet contemporary style acoustic ballads, with Shakespeare’s words and a subtle folk-blues swing. “ The group's first show was at the RSC's The Other Place in Stratford on Avon and was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 as part of the Shakespeare400 celebrations. Since then they have played in folk clubs and bookshops, at festivals and on boats all over the country and have recently released a new EP featuring the verse of poets such as W.B. Yeats, Arthur O'Shaughnessy & Edna St. Vincent Millay as well as composing a series of pieces by Philip Larkin which they performed at Coventry’s SHOOT Festival in April. For lovers of music and words. Entrance £8 in advance online or from the cafe. £10 on the door, subject to availability.
