Marc Bird brings his unique blend of Psychedelic Folk and Dream Pop to Newcastle once again, with support from Baroque Pop multi-instrumentalist May Days In Barcelona and Folk singer-songwriter Benedict Hawkin.
“Songwriter and producer Marc Bird creates atmospheric, melancholy folk-pop, mixing acoustic instruments with musique concrete and electronics. His enchanting, melodic and quirky song ‘Mother Mother’ is the epitome of curious, lilting pop, and the fact that the song was recorded and produced by Marc himself in his small DIY home studio, simply adds to its lo-fi, humble charm.”

MAY DAYS IN BARCELONA
May Days in Barcelona is the work of multi-instrumentalist Simon Clowes performing initially at a number of performance art events in Newcastle. Live shows are based around Simon using up to 4 loop pedals simultaneously, to create a melodic wall of sound, with violins weaving over fuzzy shoegaze guitars and analogue synths, drawing on elements of Post-Rock, Minimalism and Baroque Pop.
Benedict Hawkin is a Northumbrian singer/songwriter and guitarist now living in Leeds. Benedict combines an intricate and idiosyncratic apporach the the acoustic guitar with dense, symbolic, and narrative driven lyrics evocative of Joanna Newsom, Jez Lowe, Joni Mitchell, and Stan Rogers.
