A gig in Falmouth!
Cornish Bank, Falmouth, Wednesday 8th December 2021. Tickets here.
Longtime Falmouth musical miscreant Julian Gaskell (vocals, guitar, piano, accordion) and his collaborators Thomas Sharpe (banjo, upright bass, vocals) and Cally Gibson (violin, viola) return to the Cornish Bank on Wednesday 8th December to play songs from their new album “Out of the Trees”. Following on from years of rambling stride piano excess and street theatre pandemic touring, this album sees Julian return to his native world of smoky Django-esque guitar and croaking voice with a selection of new waltzes, tangos and broken jazz.
“such originality, intelligence and appeal that the ability to hear seems like a privilege” 9/10 -Vive le Rock
“a wonderful discovery” R2 *****
“he really is an original- declamatory, vulpine vocals ranting and roaring his splendidly acrid, protestful lyrics over a glorious, urgent ramshackle garage blend of Balkan-Klezmerisms and French gypsy cafebilly” – fRoots (albums of the month)
“a gorgeous, gorgeous folky voice” – BBC Introducing
“Your imagination has to provide the gypsy dancing girls, the rum, and the candlelight but Gaskell does the rest.” – Bright Young Folk
