East Durham NY- August 14th, 2018
Anna Tivel’s album ‘Small Believer’ was my favourite album of 2017. We first crossed paths back in 2015 whilst I was touring ‘All We Have Become’. My friend Paul Basile had booked the Pacific Northeast leg of that tour for me. The tour included a one week residency at Al’s Den in the heart of Portland. Paul had also booked a local act to open for me each night. On one such night, Anna was on the bill and from the moment she opened her mouth in soundcheck she absolutely blew myself and Clare away with her poetic storytelling and precise detailed songwriting. The kind of songwriting that appears to be effortless. The work is already done. You never see the stitching of the master of a craft.
We played together again at the Irish Arts Center in NYC last year as part of Susan McKeown’s SongLives series with the excellent Jeffrey Martin.
I’m excited to do a run of North East concerts with Anna starting at Rockwood Music Hall on August 24th. I know it’ll be an inspiring and fun time. Come and find us.
