The Happening presents Circe's Diner on Thursday 22nd February 2018
Circe's Diner/Larkham and Hall/Johnny Smyth
Popular intimate acoustic club 'The Happening' hosts another candlelit cosy evening of top quality music - a night which consistently attracts music fans so passionate you could hear a feather drop. This time featuring Circe's Diner, Larkham and Hall and Johnny O Smyth.
'An atmosphere of convivial bonhomie' Bristol 24/7
CIRCE'S DINER - just voted into Bristol's 'sexy list' for the second year running! Dedicated to self-penned, honest, rootsy tunes, the music from the Diner touches base with Country, Americana, Folk and Pop traditions yet the presentation and lyrical content draws inspiration from everyday life through wondrous tales of love, loss, friendship and tigers! Circe’s Diner’s tracks have been taken to live radio performances, airplay with BBC Introducing, live video favourites with Balcony TV and Sofar Sounds, film sync (High Tide. 2015) and many performances across the UK and Europe including Glastonbury Festival, Ronnie Scott’s and performing to the Great British Bakeoff’s family in the final. With their sound constantly developing whilst maintaining a humanity often lost in contemporary music, their songs (and their friendship) have touched the hearts of many. Twisted with the bittersweet, Circe’s Diner blend catchy hooks, infections melodies and dreamy harmonies in a unique way that voices strength, whilst baring one’s deepest vulnerabilities. These acoustic alchemists will take you on most intoxicating journey that will leave you feeling thoroughly charmed!
”Their mesmerising harmonies are equally unafraid, pairing Buck’s ethereal rasp (which takes the lead) with Shande’s bolder voice to provide a captivating reminder of just how powerful intertwining vocals can be. Perhaps most interesting of all is their tantalising timing, flittering and weaving around the melody and never quite falling into the usual rhythms. It’s what makes Circe’s Diner so addictive and such an interesting proposition.” – Songwriting Magazine
LARKHAM AND HALL - Americana and country singer songwriters playing heartfelt, emotional songs with top quality lyrical content and exceptionally beautiful harmonies.
'The kind of daydream england needs to reignite a spark for credible new songwriters' - NME
JOHNNY O SMYTH - silken voiced Johnny looks back for his style - retro, smooth... think Jeff Buckley and add a little 1950's.
Music Genres: Acoustic, Blues, Folk, Retro
