Matthew E White & Flo Morrissey to play Union Chapel

 

Sometimes you meet someone and everything just clicks right away – and that’s what Matthew E White and Flo Morrissey found when they performed together at the Barbican’s Lee Hazelwood celebration back in 2015. At Love and Other Crimes they duetted on Some Velvet Morning, found that they had a real musical connection and in fact things went so well for the duo that they resolved to work on a series of re-imaginings of well known songs.  The result was the acclaimed album of duets Gentlewoman Rubyman which was recorded at White’s Spacebomb studios in Richmond, Virginia and released on Glassnote last year. Gentlewoman Rubyman numbers amongst its eclectic choices Leonard Cohen’s Suzzanne as well as a retuned Grease and the hypnotic thrumming of Govindam. Now they’re bringing this album to the stage at The Union Chapel on 13th February – which will be a perfect setting for this melange of singer-songwriter-gothic-soul-disco-electro music for the mind and the body.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
