MUSIC: Tankus the Henge | Friday 4 May

This is an upbeat festival band that thrills audiences at all of Europe’s biggest shindigs, including Glastonbury, WOMAD, and Montreux Jazz Festival.

AvalonJump-Website
Most people remember Tankus the Henge for its wild showmanship; frontman Jaz Delorean occupies the stage with jagger-esque aplomb, leaping from on top of a smoking piano and launching into the audience like an athlete, whenever the moment takes him.


One of the band’s great strengths is its musical agility, that allows Tankus the Henge to incorporate a vast range of genres. Rock, funk, blues, ska, and gypsy music are all there, always underpinned by an infectious energy that contrasts with lyrics that tell stories of wonder and woe.

 

Since the release of a first album, the band has toured extensively across Europe, playing at the London Olympics, and was even named by Metro as one of its “Top 10 Acts To See” at Glastonbury Festival.

Support comes from Rivermouth; he’s the lead singer of Cavemouth, the swamp-blues outfit that has featured on BBc 6music’s Introducing and played at events such as HowTheLightGetsIn.

 

“It reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in… I love it.” Dave Davies, The Kinks
“a virtual carnival of sound that’s high on energy and deep on soul….an exciting mélange.” The Guardian

MUSIC | ELI WEST | THURSDAY 17 MAY

Well-known for his work with Cahalen Morrison, Tim O’Brien, and Jayme Stone, the Americana and folk singer and instrumentalist oozes understated talent.

2018 Image

 

This is an intimate show by one of the most tasteful and innovative of young American musicians: Seattle-based Eli West. Old and new, folk and jazz, vocal and instrumental, odd and accessible, subtle and virtuosic…. it takes great skill and care to make music that sounds this natural.

Eli’s recent debut solo album, The Both, sees him taking the lead, on electric and acoustic guitars, banjo, and pedal steel, whilst remaining a thoughtful collaborator – here with some of his close friends and personal heroes, like jazz great Bill Frisell, new Americana discovery Dori Freeman, and Anna & Elizabeth.

The album focuses on the story of his two grandfathers; one a decorated WWII prisoner of war, the other a Brethren preacher and peace advocate. They couldn’t have differed more, but together they shared a family. In this spirit, the theme of the album is duality: the first half showcases carefully built arrangements of six American folk songs, the second revisits these as instrumental passages, revealing new sides to the other.

‘Making music the world needs’ – Tim O’Brien

‘West is an artist overflowing with ideas and music’ – Green Man Review

‘Eli West is an exceptional singer, guitar player and musician, really deep stuff’ – Martin Simpson
