Tea + a Gig, the daytime gig series for parents with babies in tow, returns to The Old Church N16, for an eclectic winter / spring season, featuring an Irish troubadour, a vocal shape-shifter from LA and a surprise guest (TBA).
Dates for your diary this season are Tuesdays 7th February, 7th March and 4th April.
The season kicks off with Moira Smiley, the vocal shape-shifter and musical polyglot from L.A. performing a solo gig of early traditional music. Moira is a singer / composer who creates and performs new work for voices. Her voice – and composing – are heard on feature films, BBC & PBS television programs, NPR, and on more than 60 albums.
From closer to home, Northern Ireland’s Pat Dam Smyth joins us in March, ahead of the launch of his new album. With his debut album 'The Great Divide' receiving critical acclaim from The Independent, Q Magazine and BBC 6 Music to name but a few, his music falls somewhere between John Grant, Leonard Cohen, Father John Misty and Nick Cave.
And keep your eyes peeled for the announcement of a third exciting artist to grace the Tea + a Gig stage in April.
As ever – Tea + a Gig are proper gigs for music lovers, which just happen to appeal to tots too. Plenty of buggy parking, and a jig-around area for toddlers.
