Kindred Spirit Band

Price: 
£10 with £8 concessions

The Kindred Spirit band sound is special and distinctive, driven by "haunting and bewitching" female vocals, guitar, two classically Trained , virtuoso, lead instrument players (on violin and flute/sax), dynamic drums and bass guitar and laced with jigs, reels and duelling improvisations.

The heart of the band sound is ELAINE SAMUELS' beautiful vocals, powerful, "perceptive and intriguing" songs and guitar work. The band soars into a rock stratosphere with classically trained, exciting and charismatically eccentric, newest band member, MARTIN ASH's thrilling and beautifully melodic violin playing, which takes on the role of electric guitar during the rockier moments. He
has been known to jump off the stage and dance with the audience!

Catherine Dimmock's expert and vibrant, classically trained flute & saxophone playing  complements and plays both around and alongside the violin melodies, bursting into "Tullesque" solos, and their lovely vocals harmonise well with Elaine's.

Mike Hislop plays driving and dynamic bass rhythms alongside excellent prog rock drummer, Aleem Saleh.

Support comes from the more electric but no-less-proggy The Zone
