Acoustic Routes Charity Xmas Concert

Venue: CB2
Date: 13 Dec 2008 - 19:45
End Date: 13 Dec 2008 - 23:00
  • Aloneme, Bob Collum, Pavlov's Cat, Jade Rhiannon
Event details: Aloneme is essentially three people: the song-writing partnership and interweaving vocals of singer Sarah Springett and multi-instrumentalist and singer David Booth, plus the solid, subtle, often understated foundations of highly respected drummer, percussionist & programmer Simon Edgoose. Recently, this core has been complimented by the addition of the classically-trained Liz Townsend on Cello, Piano and backing vocals. They offer powerful songs, hummable tunes, three fantastic voices blending a memorable mix of bittersweet pop for the masses.

Roots-rock-pop-singer-songwriter Bob Collum, from Tulsa, Oklahoma is a great favourite at Acoustic Routes. He was described by Fish Records as "one of the very best singer/songwriters around" and Rolling Stone said simply "Great songs, great songwriter!".

Formed in 1999 Pavlov's Cat play melodic, rolling songs with the emphasis on dynamics and organic sounds. They are lyrically cynical, occasionally dark but not without a glimmer of optimism. James Hibbins' spartan acoustic guitar and rich vocals are now accompanied by Bernard Hoskin on acoustic bass.

Jade Rhiannon is a singer/songwriter from Cambridge whose music has been inspired by Tori Amos, Jeff Buckley, Gillian Welch and Billie Holiday.

This year at AloneMe's request the Christmas Charity Concert will be raising money for Little Havens Children's Hospice near Rayleigh in Essex.
