A Taste of Nashville at Ropery Hall

Talented guitarist Martin Harley and bassist Daniel Kimbro will be appearing on Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall stage to give the audience a taste of Nashville.

The duo will be at the Maltkiln Road venue on Saturday, March 4, with a sound that has been described by Guitar Magazine as “staggeringly good, no one is making music like it.”

“Martin is a supremely talented acoustic roots and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “His new studio album ‘Static In The Wires’ that was recorded in Nashville has just been released and follows the critically acclaimed ‘Live At Southern Ground”.

This is Martin’s seventh album to date and the second to feature Daniel Kimbro as well as 14 time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas (Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, and Dolly Parton), Derek Mixon (Chris Stapleton, Sam Lewis) and Micah Hulsher (Alabama Shakes).

“Their live shows seek to bring aspects of blues, Americana and folk to the table,” Liz went on. “ Martin plays a 100 year Weissenborn (Hawaiian acoustic lap guitar), while Daniel plucks beats, scratches and bows his double bass to create and an unexpected array of textures and sounds”.

Recently Martin has headlined Music City Roots in Nashville, while Daniel has played the Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry, and Bonnaroo.

Last summer in Canada the duo played Winnipeg, Vancouver, Canmore and Calgary Folk Music Festivals as well as shows in the Caribbean, the US and Europe.

The duo will be on stage at 8pm and tickets to the show cost £14 in advance or £16 on the door.  Advance tickets can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person at The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.

Mammal Hands

Mammal Hands are a trio of like-minded musicians: Nick Mart piano, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, and Jordan Smart saxophones. Signed to Matthew Halsall’s Gondwana Records they have carved out a growing following both here and abroad for their hypnotic fusion of jazz, folk and electronica: winning fans from Bonobo and Gilles Peterson to Jamie Cullum and they have been compared to both Portico Quartet and GoGo Penguin (who the group have toured with) for the way in which they navigate the choppy waters between contemporary dance music and jazz. Drawing on a rich well of influences from Sufi and shamanic African trance music, Irish and Eastern European folk music, to Steve Reich and Philip Glass and more contemporary electronica influences, their music is built around deceptively simple sounding ideas that are lent power through the use of repetition and rhythmic loops.
