Tuesday 18 April, 7.30pm Tickets £16.90 “The arrangements of the songs on Impermanence, Brooklyn singer Peter Silberman’s first solo album, are so minimal and sparse that they make his exquisite recordings with his group The Antlers seem positively rococo. On intimate tracks such as Maya and Karuna, Silberman’s croon is accompanied by nothing more than the occasional strum of a guitar.

Hers is a rare gift.” A heavenly voice couched in spellbinding country & western ballads, with a devastating emotional delivery: Holly Macve is a fantastic addition to the Bella...

STEVE GUNN, Monday 3 April, 7.30pm “People have written about roads for as long as they’ve been around. And before there were roads, they still wrote about travel and about landscape. Landscape is the stage upon which our greatest experiences and desires play out. Steve Gunn’s music has always embraced expanse and movement. It springs from the simple and profound relationship between humans and their environment. Eyes On The Lines is his most explicit ode to the blissful uncertainty of adventure yet. Gunn’s roots in the underground run deep, from his days in GHQ to his...
