Ancient Armenian Music Fusion - Arsen Petrosyan and Jenny Bliss

Category: Events Published on 20 December 2018 admin
Hits: 89

Sunday January 13th

Armenian duduk master Arsen Petrosyan joins singer and multi instrumentalist Jenny Bliss ('fantastic' Sean Rafferty, Radio 3) for a unique collaboration. The plaintive voice of the duduk is the iconic sound of Armenian music. Elizabethan lute songs, haunting Armenian melodies, virtuosic baroque sonatas for violin, evocative settings of Rumi poetry by Jenny Bliss, jazz and free improvisation will be woven together to create an unforgettable experience.

Local 'slightlydelic' folk duo Antique Doll describe their music as 'moth like nursery rhymes created in our front room'. They went down particularly well last Autumn and we are delighted to have them back.

'Spooky lysergic-child-song folksters' (Dann Chinn, misfitcity.org)

'..haunting female/male vocal harmonies that recall eerie '70s kids TV shows like Children of the Stones and The Owl Service as much as they do Donovan, Vashti Bunyan or The Wicker Man soundtrack...' (Shindig Magazine)

Support from Frank Birtwistle - spacious and meditative instrumentals with sweet, melancholy chord progressions on classical fingerstyle guitar.
