Review of Hark!
Would you recommended: Yes
Far more than I thought it was going to be. Utterly captivating and I won the raffle too.
Amazing night in a fantastic venue
Fantastic night, great bands, great venue
The Shining Levels were amazing!!!
An unusual event in an unusual venue, the musicians and readers mostly stepped up to the mark superbly. The first act, a singer/songwriter brought in to replace the advertised Nel Unlit, was rather too diffident with his obscure, dull lyrics. However, both Storm Chorus - a folktronica duo producing doomy, attractive atmospheres in rewritten trad folk songs - and The Shining Levels - an electro-acoustic band with music "inspired by Ben Myers's novel The Gallows Pole" - entranced the audiences. Five-part vocal harmonies are not easy to pull off live, but they managed very well. If only the camera operator darting around between us and the performers could have been put to one side, it would have been a perfect gig. I hope there are plenty more, and that they keep the entrance ticket price low.
Please organise more events like this , just what Darlington needs
Brilliant night of music and words in such a stunning venue. Wonderful wordplay from ED Woods, Storm Chorus provided anti-folk humour and horror, The Shining Levels were awesome.
Great event and the venue really suited it. Atmosphere and acoustics were really good and Shining Levels were excellent.
Tracks Darlington presented Hark, which showcased a tip top mix of spoken word and storey based music, set aptly in Darlington Crown Street library. Great event!
An absolutely excellent evening with great music, readings and friendly bar in an amazing location. Great atmosphere and gave me an opportunity to experience lots of new things - I'm looking forward to the next event with great anticipation!
I also loved the open library facility for everyone attending - genius :)
Excellent evening. Wonderfully innovative use of the Library - a model for diverse community events. Great performers particularly the highly entertaining Ed Woods and atmospheric Shining Levels. Well done Tracks and well done the Library and it’s staff who were really friendly and helpful.
Let’s have more please
great gog. brillianr music and words and what a setting. more please
It was a lovely evening, we thoroughly enjoyed it, especially The Shining Levels. I hadn’t heard of any of the bands before or the book ‘The Gallows Pole’ so it was a great discovery experience to be exposed to new music and literature. The lighting created a great ambience and it was so nice to have a pop up bar so we could get a drink. Only having one toilet in the building is really going to limit things though and I drank less than I otherwise would due to this. We arrived late so it was entirely our own fault, but we couldn’t see the stage hardly at all. Perhaps due to the small space and lack of adequate toilet facilities it might be best to limit the number of tickets a little bit more and charge a slightly higher price? Just a thought. The building does need more adequate toilet facilities in any case though and has since I started going there as a child in the 1970s.
