Saturday 11 November 2017, 7.30pm
Studio Theatre at The Other Place
Enjoy an evening of live performance by Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band for one night only as part of their national tour.
The show, 'Second Instar', at times jovial and boisterous and others a dulcet call to arms, promises to challenge and inspire, confront and sympathise. The performance will be drawn mainly from Kerr's second release Instar, but will also feature songs from her debut album, Sweet Visitor.
Since Sweet Visitor arrived in late 2014, Nancy Kerr has emerged as one of the UK’s foremost composers of modern folk and social commentary songs.
About Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band
A writer of rare style, Kerr's music has drawn comparisons to William Blake in her reawakening of a radical folk mythology as a backdrop for contemporary narratives and has inspired some to call her “Folk's Poet Laureate”.
The compositions that make up her second release, Instar, explore the themes of human and ecological interaction that lie just beneath the surface of so many traditional folk songs. The lore and language of nature provide a repertoire of raw, universal images with which to address subjects such as gender identity and sexuality, struggles for human rights, love and consent, colonialism and the effects of austerity on our culture and ourselves.
With her Sweet Visitor Band now an established unit, Nancy will be joined on stage by bandmates:
Tim Yates: Double Bass, Melodeon and Voice
Greg Russell: Guitars and Voice
Tom Wright: Drums, Guitars and Voice
