Cerys Matthews to play in MareelPosted by Lisa Ward on August 16th, 2012 No Comments
The ‘Cerys by Candlelight’ Tour will roll into town in December and snuggle down in venues around Great Britain, including Mareel in Shetland, for a festive feast of music, poetry, and the purely unexpected that makes each and every Cerys Matthews live show a unique experience.
It’s a long way from her late 90s huge Catatonia hits and media bits that were essential to the zeitgeist of the times. Her talents have since emerged in her widely successful solo albums, ranging from ‘Cock A Hoop’, recorded in Nashville in 2003, through to 2009’s ‘Don’t Look Down’ and the more recent ‘Explorer’ (2011) which did what it said on the tin – taking the listener around the world in the same way that Cerys’ hugely popular BBC 6Music radio programme has made its reputation as a must-listen for any real music lover on a Sunday morning.
Cerys will also have a new album ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ (2012), featuring 15 winter faves, sung with great gusto and humour, two qualities that no doubt Cerys will be looking for when she visits Shetland.
The concert will take place on 20 December in Mareel – the perfect way to open the Christmas Season.
Tickets will go on sale soon. Please check Shetland Arts’ website regularly for further details.
