We love this venue for its old world woodiness, its excellent heating, its accessibility, its kitchen and its location. Also its the perfect size for a "One Mic Stand". What does that mean?! It means trimming amplification down to a single microphone, on a single stand at the front of the Band. Its the way things were done in the early days of acoustic music making and its effective for audiences of up to 80 people. We find its the most dynamic way of playing and produces a gorgeous acoustic ambience.
Freddie is very special young singer, 17 years old with a voice that is many lifetimes old. A huge talent . Follow this link to hear Freddie in Rehearsal with the Pindrops. https://vimeo.com/86038163
"To go to a Pindrop concert is
to set out on an adventure through an ever-changing acoustic
landscape of eccentric instruments and songs. This 9-piece
Bristol collective cut their own cloth, write their own songs
and, more unusually, make many of their own instruments. Expect
to hear the Tinklele (tin ukulele), Tinvolin
(tin violin), tin guitar, bizarre percussion, Celtic harp,
string bass, dobro, slide guitar, accordion, autoharp and
tin whistle, as well as beautiful multilayered harmonies.
These are serious musicians, but they never fail to send their
audiences home with a smile on their faces and a skip in their
step." (Tobacco Factory Website)
Meanwhile we've been making music around the kitchen table. Here's a track we'll be playing on Oct 8th called "Belleville", Wendy Hesse on Vocals, Martin gypsy violin.
