This month's performers include:
An intimate vocal and piano performance showcasing Lissie's hit songs in celebration of her upcoming album. After releasing her stunning top 10 record 'Castles' last year, Lissie is returning in 2019 with 'When I’m Alone: The Piano Retrospective'- an evocative collection that reinterprets songs from her first decade in music as well as exceptional covers of Fleetwood Mac and The Dixie Chicks.
With this record, Lissie is poised to show listeners that her past is hardly static, that the songs she wrote nearly 10 years ago are still fresh and vibrant, evoking feelings old and new. For Lissie, the idea behind ‘When I’m Alone: The Piano Retrospective’ came about almost as a test of each tune’s structural integrity.
Jo Dudderidge (Later Youth) is the lead singer and main songwriter for Manchester’s much-lauded act The Travelling Band. The Travelling Band have released 4 critically acclaimed albums – Under the Pavement (2008), Screaming is Something (2011), The Big Defreeze (2014) and SAILS (2017). They have toured extensively around the world including performances in Canada, Georgia and were the first British act to visit and perform in Kosovo.
They have performed at festivals such as Glastonbury (3 times at the Other Stage/Park/Acoustic), CMJ Festival (New York), NXNE (Toronto), Cropredy, Green Man, Festival No.6, Kendal Calling, End of the Road and Beautiful Days and spent much of 2016 touring Europe as Lissie’s backing band and support act.
Youth Music are a national charity investing in music-making projects that help children and young people aged 0-25 to develop personally and socially as well as musically. They work particularly with those who don’t get to make music because of who they are, where they live, or what they’re going through. They believe in practical, creative music-making of every possible genre, style and technique. Everyone has the ability to make music.
They support children and young people to build their confidence, resilience, and self-esteem. Projects funded by Youth Music help to break down barriers at all stages – helping children develop an early love of music, providing diverse role models, introducing young people to a wide variety of potential career paths, and working with the music industry to make its practices more inclusive
