I really will get back to poetry, I assure you, dear reader, but there are other shinies afoot! It is time to send Eric Eckhart’s new album, This is where it starts out into the world, with our grand official launch party, this Saturday evening at Volksbar ( just outside where Berlin’s Schoenhauser Tor would have been, had we been playing there a couple of hundred years ago).
We have new arrangements of the songs for you, and I don’t mind telling you that I’m a bit delighted with how it’s sounding. We’d love to see a whole lot of folk there to celebrate with us, and if the music isn’t enough, it’s free entry and there will be cookies!
Regular readers will already know of my enthusiasm for the splendid rootsy and emotive music of our Mr Eckhart, and may recall that the marvellous Ms Sam and I have been performing alongside him as he introduces his new album to the world. Our next show is on Friday evening at Art.Gerecht – one of my all-time favourite music venues and a lovely cafe as well – soft and cosy and always sounding dreamy-good. This concert will feature some surprises for those who’ve heard us before, and abundant goodness for people new to the sounds. Please come along and bring your posse!
Friday 27 August, 20:00
Art.Gerecht, Jungstrasse 14, Berlin Friedrichshain
If you like electric calendars/reminders, you can find the gig on Facebook and MySpace, too.
Hoping to see you there!
