ME AND MY FRIENDS
Saturday 9 February at Presteigne Assembly Rooms, 8pm
Me and My Friends perform with infectious energy, creating a unique blend of bouncy reggae and loveable afro grooves. The UK-based quintet plays soulful, poignant and gloriously danceable music, including vintage Ghanaian highlife, Jamaican roots and Afro-Brazilian folk.
The elegant voice and West African finger-picking guitar style of songwriter Nick Rasle combine with stunning vocal harmonies and the evocative combination of cello and clarinet, all underpinned by a vibrant rhythm section. This is sun-drenched music to cheer up a February evening. Don't miss!
"Unusual instrumental forces create a sublime fusion that combines pastoral dreaminess with the heat of reggae, highlife and Afrobeat sounds” - Songlines Magazine.
“A life-affirming sound”, Loose Ends, BBC Radio 4.
