Back in January (article here) we mentioned that The Magic Lantern had been busy writing and rehearsing for a new album. You can now lisen to a demo recording of their new song ‘Hercules’ below:
Vocals – Jamie Doe
Piano, percussion, cello – Fred Thomas
Clarinet – Dave Shulman
Their seasonal residency at The Green Note is also nearly at an end. Their final show is on 25th April when they will be joined by The Beguilers (tracks below), a recently formed F-IRE Collective band that bring together tender, melliflous singing and sensitively crafted song-writing. These elements are woven into the narratives of poems by William Blake, Shakespeare, Joyce and others, delicately bringing their images and metaphors to life with finely wrought harmonies and luscious melodies. Composed by Fred Thomas for singer Ellie Rose and clarinetist Dave Shulman, these songs will invite your imagination to be at once moved, released and beguiled.
