310 Piney Gir: Midsummer Madness with She Choir + Oly Ralfe
22 June @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Midsummer Madness part of our celebration of 10 Years of Daylight Music at Union Chapel, Islington.
Piney Gir perfect pop music is dipped in sunshine, so she was an obvious choice to curate a special event inspired by the Summer Solstice as part of our 10th Year celebration. She wants you to get playful, be creative, and come along for summertime inspiration and maybe even do a little white witchy spell with her in honour of The Longest Day.
Her allies on this afternoon will be London women’s SHE Choir who sing their technicolour version of songs from Destiny’s Child to Fleetwood Mac. Oly Ralfe (Ralfe Band) will present music from his debut solo instrumental piano album. Sitting somewhere between the oscillating patterns of Philip Glass and the reflectiveness of Gavin Bryars, the album ‘Notes From Another Sea’ sounds like music for a film that has yet to be made. Finally Piney presents Premium Leisure aka Chris Barker who has honed his own sound a mix of experimental guitars and undulating rhythms are reminiscent of late 60s English psychedelic rock with a bit of early Tame Impala or White Denim thrown in.
Originally hailing from Kansas, but having lived in London for many years, Piney is a prolific and prodigious musician. She has been touring with Gaz Coombes around the UK, Europe and America and is also one of Gaz’s backing singers. She has recently been singing with Noel Gallagher and Danny Goffey, and supported Ride on tour around the UK just before Christmas. She’s gearing up to release her seventh album, “You Are Here”, which is a celebration of analogue gear with a sound that nods back to when music was on the cusp of change, just before synth pop and just after punk rock.
An event for all ages. Pay-What-You-Can ticket on door (suggested ticket price £5).
