James Blackshaw graces ATP with his presence
Having released his acclaimed album The Glass Bead Game(Young God Records) last year, and currently on tour in the US, James Blackshaw has confirmed UK dates for May with an an appearance at the ATP Festival curated by Matt Groening (7th May) as well as being an integral part of the Kept Impulses Tour.
James will also embark on a 6 date run of shows on the Kept Impulses Tour alongside the prepared piano player Hauschka, and singer/songwriter Nancy Elizabeth.
Starting at the Barbican on 10th May, Hauschka, James and Nancy Elizabeth will perform together for the first time alongside solo performances and with (in London) backing from a hand-picked chamber ensemble. As composers and performers all three effortlessly weave traditional folk, contemporary classical and modern song into magical and transfixing musical suites.
This Kept Impulses Tour quietly explores the waking dreams, hidden emotions and sense of other that these acts draw upon.
