Green Man uproots and heads out on the road
Green Man has signed up the really rather marvellous Cate Le Bon and Lawrence Arabia to put a little Spring in your step this March and spread a little psych/folk/pop sunshine in a part of the UK very near YOU.
Welsh wonder Cate Le Bon is no stranger to Green Man fans, having bewitched the last two festivals with her beguiling voice and brilliant songs. Having spent 2008 collaborating with SFA’s Gruff Rhys as singer and bass player with the Mercur-nominated Neon Neon, 2009 saw Cate bag a hatful of rave reviews for her extraordinary English language debut Me Oh My – a thing of unadulterated beauty, no less.
Continuing his mission to bring you the very best new music around today, Green Man introduces New Zealand’s self-styled “man of legs” Lawrence Arabia– if you’ve not hard of him yet then be warned, you will do soon. The man has a wicked way with a tune and is positively overflowing with off-kilter melodic genius. Think Fleetwood Mac meets The Beach Boys with a dash of Bowie and White Album-era Beatles and you’re on the right lines.
