Spindle Ensemble are performing a tour of intimate venues across the UK to celebrate the release of their second album ‘Inkling’ (Hidden Notes Records) and we are delighted to welcome them to the Goods Shed. Their music sits somewhere between classical and contemporary, always melodic, and instantly recognisable by their unique instrumentation for a chamber quartet:
Daniel Inzani – piano, Celtic harp, accordion — Caelia Lunniss – violin — Harriet Riley – marimba, vibraphone — Jo Silverston – cello
The quartet was formed in 2016 by bandleader and composer Daniel Inzani, accompanied by a versatile classically trained musicians who also perform a huge variety of other styles. Equally at home performing in concert halls such as the Union Chapel, Southbank Centre, Bristol Beacon, St George’s Bristol and festivals including Shambala and Hidden Notes to churches, art centres, record shops and independent venues across the UK they continue to bring their music to a diverse and ever growing audience.
Listeners may hear influences from composers such as Satie, Pärt, Ravel, Reich, Glass and Moondog in their music but might also find the soundtracks of Morricone and the minimalist aesthetics of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra nestled alongside the more experimental leanings of groups such as Rachel’s, Esmerine, Bell Orchestre and Amiina.
