    Duotone and Larkhall unite for Bristol gig

    Press contact Elisabeth Winkler 0777 399 8642

    Sunday 6 November 2016 @ The Folk House, Bristol, UK 

    Enter a melodic soundscape with two singer-songwriters who push sonic boundaries while delivering damn good story-telling songs.

    Duotone, aka Barney Morse-Brown (cellist with triple-platinum artist Birdy) is a singer-songwriter creating evocative folk songs fusing electronica with crystal-clear vocals, guitar and cello, distilled with classical grace.

    “A hidden gem.”

    — Observer

    “[The] sound is light but cleverly layered, the songs minimal but resonant.”

    — Guardian/Observer

    Charlie Williams, pianist and singer, aka Larkhall

    Larkhall is Chicago-born Charlie Williams, a pianist who brings an indie-classical sensibility to his anthemic, melodic songs. Entrancing lyrics are raised up by the rise and swell of lyrical, heart-opening piano and strings. Expect unconventional add-ons including Blu Tack, one-handed drumming and metronome-as-percussion.

    “…Spoke directly to the Nils Frahm fan in me… glorious, heartfelt melody.”

    — Fresh on the Net

    “Exceptional, powerful… something you need to experience.”

    — No More Division

    Why Bristol? Larkhall’s singer and pianist, Charlie Williams, says: “Barney is based in Oxford, I’m in Bath, so it makes perfect sense for us to play in Bristol, with its thriving scene of indie musical creativity.”

    Date and time Sunday 6 November 2016, doors @7:30.
