with Daniel Glover supporting
Transcendent roots music from a historical period that hasn’t happened yet
Explaining Marty O’Reilly and the Old Soul Orchestra’s music is like describing a remembered dream. It’s blues but not blues, folk but not folk, soulful but not soul. We welcome back these amazing artists launching their new album Stereoscope on this UK tour.
Marty’s voice is beautiful and distinctive, his lyrics stark yet lush over gritty electrified guitar. Chris Lynch’s violin, Matt Goff’s percussion and Ben Berry’s rich bass meld beautifully. The chemistry of these friends is obvious.
The live performance is at their core. They go from raw gospel blues to cinematic epics, from heavy driving grooves to delicately arranged folk songs. They leave the stage out of breath, the ground littered with broken strings and bow hairs. It’s hard to describe, impossible to categorise.
The band formed in Santa Cruz California in 2012 and has been touring relentlessly ever since. They invite you to join them.
