Deep in the bowels of BBC Radio York, there’s been rumblings for many years. Great bands, stunning live sessions and an ethic of getting some, frankly, bloody great music out there. That’s all well and good, but it ain’t live – and the penny has dropped in Bootham Towers courtesy Mr Matt Seymour, music champ, prolific Twitterer and man of enthusiastically eclectic taste. From Cavalier’s transatlantic commercial balladry to Overreact’s angular indie-punk clatter inspired by Tokyo Police Club. From Julianne Moore’s Polyphonic Spree with synths to the jazz/soul/trip-hop of Alvin Purple; a terrific night is in store and all recorded for posterity and future broadcast.

Such hyperbole – but no less than any other gig blurb at this fine venue

Thea Gilmore – UK – Acoustic / Indie / Rock –

I thoroughly enjoyed the Thea Gilmore gig at The Duchess in York last night. The performance was simple and sincere. I’ve listened to her music for years and have most of her albums but she was even better live.
The Duchess is an intimate venue and the audience was surprisingly small – even for a cold Sunday evening in York. But Thea’s performance was warm and engaging, supported by her producer and husband Nigel Stonier and Fluff (viola, vocals and guitar).
As long as Thea performs, the spirit of Joan Baez and the folk tradition of social comment and protest will live on. – Thea Gilmore – UK – Acoustic / Indie / Rock –
