Special film and concert performance in Machynlleth

Renowned world music outfit The Kate Doubleday Band is staging a very special film and concert performance on Saturday 19th September at The Tabernacl, Machynlleth.

Local singer-songwriter and community gardener Kate Doubleday has recently won an award from the Arts Council of Wales to develop "Free-Falling" - a new body of work which focuses on migration, movement and wildlife.

She will be performing a preview of this new work with her band and special guest star Jamie Smith, the highly talented accordionist from the acclaimed Celtic Band Mabon.

"Kate's songs are like world music on an intimate scale" - Propergander Magazine.

One of the songs will be accompanied by a beautiful animated film created by magical Cardiff-based animator Virginia Head.

Kate sings of love, family and nature, weaving together strands of Celtic folk, blues and African influences. They are partly based on her experience working at RSPB Ynyshir, and the therapeutic community garden in Machynlleth.

She will also sing songs from her recent acclaimed album "Belonging" - which has a distinctive and innovative sound intertwining hypnotic vocals, kora and bass to give a rich and tender tapestry.

"Kate's one of the most imaginative of the current crop of singer-songwriters. Her music is strongly spiritual, beautiful and inspirational, intelligently conceived and executed."... "compelling listening"..."has the eager exploratory nature of a Kate Bush." - Propergander Magazine

"A superb album" - Acoustic Magazine

Her band features the wonderful talents of Trevor Lines (Double bass), Dan Wilkins (Guitar and Kora) Lydia Glanville (Percussion) and Pamela Pinnock (Vocals).

"A spiritual soundtrack for the soul" - NetRhythms

The concert is at the MOMA Tabernacl, Machynlleth. at 7.30pm. Doors open 7pm Concessions £6 Others £7.

This is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
