More on the line-up!
A New International!
Lush, poetic, bittersweet romanticism; an evocative mixture of cinematic strings, circus lights, carnival and cabaret, music hall, gypsy, chanson, a little bit of folk, a little bit of flamenco, yet with pop at its beating heart – welcome to the world of Glasgow’s finest, A New International.www.anewinternational.com
Malachy Tallack’s first book, a travelogue and memoir Sixty Degrees North, was published in 2015 and was chosen as a Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4. His second, The Un-Discovered Islands, is due in September 2016. As a singer-songwriter, he has released four albums and performed in venues across the UK. www.malachytallack.com
A singer-songwriter hailing from the grimy shores of the Clyde whose yearning and often fantastical lyrics are brimming with turmoil and optimism. www.chrissybarnacle.bandcamp.com
