With: Bridie Jackson
Star + Shadow Cinema
Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Saturday, September 5 at 7.30pm
Tonight sees the return of two Star & Shadow favourites.
Joanna Newsom and Will Oldham collaborator Alasdair Roberts, now resident in Denmark, returns to the Cinema for a one-off special show.
He’s joined by the wonderful Bridie Jackson, recently described by Culture Magazine as “leaving audiences stunned and critics challenged”.
It will be a night of hard-focus folk and songs that tell stories you’ll never forget.
“While there are echoes of Incredible String Band’s motley eclecticism, the pained isolation of Nick Drake, and British traditional music, this music is original in every way” – BBC
“A moving, decidedly dark strain of acoustic blues-tinged folk” – Metro
