Delaney Davidson & his Ghost Orchestra

+ Ruth Gordon and the Roof Gardeners + Andy Skellam

Thu 23 July 2015 // 20:00

Tickets: £5 in advance, £7 on the door

Antipodean troubadour Delaney Davidson makes a welcome return to the Cube, his rumpled stage persona combining an unconventional and unforgettable voice with a wry and twisted sense of humour. Revelling in the darker side of things, Davidson’s lyrical content dredges up classic murder ballads, songs with a deep insight into the human condition, and hypnotic trance takes on old blues classics, all liberally laced with an abiding sympathy for human quirks, failure, foibles and triumphs. Neo-gothic-folk-noir-country at it's finest.

Ruth Gordon plays banjo, guitar, and ukulele, weaving in found sounds to her recordings and live performances, traveling the country spinning musical tales of the natural, the nautical, the human, and the beyond, reminiscent of the ‘soundtrack to a fantastical children’s story.’ The Roof Gardeners provide both musical and moral support on violin, double bass, and mouth.

Bristol based Andy Skellam creates an idiosyncratic blend of surreal folk & dissonant blues using acoustic/electric guitar, banjo and his baritone singing voice, reflecting darkly humorous & deeply affecting absurdities.
