Haiku Salut + Tiny Leaves on Friday 30th November 2018
We welcome Haiku Salut and Tiny Leaves to the magical space that is St Alkmunds Church, Shrewsbury for a unique double bill.
Haiku Salut are the acclaimed instrumental trio from the Derbyshire Dales, who recently released their third album There Is No Elsewhere on Sept 7 via PRAH Recordings.
Haiku Salut consists of multi-instrumentalists Gemma Barkerwood, Sophie Barkerwood, and Louise Croft. Between them, Haiku Salut play accordion, piano, glockenspiel, trumpet, guitar, ukulele, drums, and melodica. Their music also features electronic elements, which they refer to as 'loopery and laptopery'. Influenced by the evocative film soundtracks of Yann Tiersen and Benoît Charest, the genre-melting electronica of early Múm, and the impressionistic writing of Haruki Murakami, the band released their debut album Tricolore in 2013, to critical acclaim, which was followed in 2015 by the equally acclaimed Etch And Etch Deep (“the album Four Tet might have made after Rounds” – The Observer). Last year they collaborated with Public Service Broadcasting on the track “They Gave Me A Lamp”, which featured on the PSB’s top five album, Every Valley.
Tiny Leaves is the instrumental music of Shropshire based Composer - Performer Joel Pike, his music has a delicate cinematic quality that brings about a quiet hope. He has shared stages with Julianna Barwick, A Winged Victory For The Sullen and Sam Amidon amongst many of his own critically acclaimed live shows. Pike continues to push the boundaries of his instrumental music and as well as having new music featured on Nils Fram’s own 2018 global piano-day playlist, he continues to produce new music and is currently working on his fourth album this year.
