Join us for our ‘Save The Male’ Gig on Saturday 14th May 2016 – North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade, Oxford. An evening of melodic live music to raise awareness of the Thames Valley CALMzone and the issue of male suicide.
Doors: 7.30 pm / Tickets £14 (Concessions £10) Available from North Wall’s Box Office: 01865 319450 Address: North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade, Oxford OX2 7JN
Artists on the night: Duotone + Jess Hall + Richard Neuberg + Matt Chanarin
Duotone says: “I am really glad to be involved with CALM and this night in Oxford. Suicide is the biggest single killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK, and 76% of all suicides in the UK are male. The Thames Valley has recently become a CALMzone to raise awareness and tackle this urgent issue and I hope we can make a real difference.”
With his mesmerising solo performances, which move seamlessly between riotous energy and heartfelt intimacy, it’s easy to see why Duotone has a rapidly growing fan base. Duotone is the alias of songwriter, Barney Morse-Brown, cellist with multi-platinum artist, Birdy and BBC Folk Award winners the Imagined Village, Chris Wood, Eliza Carthy and Jackie Oates.
Duotone’s new album ‘Let’s Get Low’, written at home on his narrowboat, reveals a songwriter who is unafraid to explore real-life experiences that are often hidden from view. His debut album ‘Work Harder & One Day You’ll Find Her’ (2009) and critically acclaimed second LP ‘Ropes’ (2011) saw Duotone navigating his way through a personal loss.
Jess Hall grew up near the coastline of North Devon and started writing songs about the quirks of love and life. Since moving to landlocked Oxford she has established herself with her simple stunning clarity of voice and images of coastal love and loss.
Viarosa main man, Richard Neuberg, is back with a set of new material that is even more resistant to pigeon-holing than his former band’s back catalogue. Vastnesses are conjured and apocalyptic sorrows hinted-at, but alongside them are intimate fingerpicked cat’s cradles more akin to Nick Drake than Nick Cave.
