MARISSA NADLER + LIONSHARE + DAVID THOMAS BROUGHTON + NORTH CROSS

Holy Trinity Church
Boar Lane
Leeds

Doors 8pm
5


Marissa Nadler
On stage, clad in black shawls and cascading tresses, Marissa Nadler performs with an intricate finger-style on the guitar, ukele, and 5-string banjo. Yet it is often her voice that is a shuttle towards another time, a soprano reverberating with melancholy and longing. From her earliest incarnations, Marissa appeared with music that was unique and gorgeous skillfully and simply hinting at the songs of the sea, the haunting chansons of maidens, the cowboy ditties of ranchers, and the funerary processions of mourners.

David Thomas Broughton

Lionshare
'With all the stately dolorousness of early Leonard Cohen, they combine guitar, cello, and melancholy with strong, quiet hands. Its beautiful, mood-swung, post-psych folk'. - The Wire

North Cross
Hailing from the wilds of Manchester, North Cross will be gracing the good people of Leeds with their presence, making a rare trip over the Pennines to play their own brand of hushed folk/country melodies and soundscapes. Truly beautiful stuff.
