The Occasional Orchestra & JOY
24 February | 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| £12
Doors open at 7pm*. Licensed bar.
Purveyors of melodic folk pop and peddlers of quality original, songs, this six piece semi acoustic group has led them to be dubbed, ‘The Mumford and Sons you don’t want to punch’ – with only a touch of irony – by R2 magazine last year in their five star review of the band’s second album, Clever Bones.
Luscious harmonies layered upon infectious rhythms; singer songwriter Darrell Mitchell is a storyteller leading you gently into a place in the UK past and present where ordinary characters do extraordinary things.
On Valentines Day 2018, the band release Glue, a heartwarming new single to raise money for valuable music therapy for dementia patients, in partnership with the Methodist Homes Association charity.
Supported by JOY
Joining Occasional Orchestra to get the evening off to a flying start will be JOY, who combine intricate songwriting with imaginative harmonies, reminiscent of a dynamic modern take on the likes of Simon & Garfunkel. After making a strong impression in the local area, JOY have released their debut single ‘Rivers’ with the intention of releasing more music in 2018.
