(Again)

On Friday, BIG UNTIDY present JUKE BOX FURY

Regualr visiotrs to these pages and to the Rising Sun, will already know the deal with Big Untidy.  A wide assortment of musical acts, mostly acoustic, and totally untidy

For this edition of Juike Box Fury, performers choose 2 songs/pieces of music which they found inspiring.They play each piece of music and then they perform some sort of poem/prose piece inspired by/connected to the music in some way. Sort of.

Also, on Saturday evening, we birng you something special from BLACKHEART

In just four years, since their song 'Unlike Water' was used on the Moben Kitchens TV commercial, British multi-instrumentalist duo Blackheart have recorded three albums, enjoyed air play in nearly every country in the world and played successful tours of UK, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands plus two headline tours of Australia and New Zealand.

Described in the press as a 'fabulously eclectic psychedelic-folk neo-prog band' [Kensington and Chelsea Today], the male/female duo Blackheart combine traditional acoustic instruments with vocals, effects and an array of ancient synthesizers to create a new brand of avant-garde ethereal folk. In short - don't miss!
