Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
Held By Trees debut album Solace brings together seven Talk Talk/Mark Hollis alumni and veterans of bands such as Pink Floyd, Blur, Dire Straits and blues icon, Eric Bibb. Instrumental, with a bucolic blend of English melancholy and tentative optimism - Held By Trees’ live iteration features guitar legend Robbie McIntosh (McCartney, The Pretenders, John Mayer, Talk Talk), Laurence Pendrous on keyboards (Mark Hollis, Anja Garbarek), Paul Beavis on drums and project leader David Joseph among other stellar musicians. Instrumental improv sitting somewhere between post-rock and prog.
