Event description

Description

Where does a band go, after a symphonic journey that peaks with orchestral
performances at the Royal Festival Hall and Royal Albert Hall? Back to the beginning
of course. Before fronting one of the most artistically brave and revered bands
working today, Tyneside sisters Rachel and Becky Unthank grew up singing songs
without accompaniment, in weaving, unschooled vocal harmony. As if to prove that
creativity should never be about ambition or aspiration, The Unthanks move on from
their recent orchestral explorations by going back to what they know and do best -
singing in unaccompanied harmony - joined on this tour by Unthanks member
Niopha Keegan to make a vocal trio. The three have already established a band
within a band in The Unthanks, with the success of haunting harmony signature
pieces like Magpie, recently brought to wider attention by Mackenzie Crook’s
beautifully poignant series, Detectorists. On this tour, they fully explore their rich and
unique vocal combinations, with brand new material and arrangements, alongside
more familiar Unthanks material. Believing unaccompanied song to be a
performance art of storytelling and communication, instead of recording a studio
album, each show will be recorded and there will be chance at shows to pre-order a
forthcoming album compiled from live performances on this tour.
