(N)YTMG presents: An Evening with Harriet Riley and Alex Garden

concinnity /kənˈsɪnɪti/ (n.)

a harmonious arrangement of parts.

In the depths of winter, what could be better than an evening of folk-inflected pastoral adventures that summon up the most delicious of sunny, summer days.  The unusual juxtaposition of vibraphone and fiddle allows Harriet and Alex to open up new creative landscapes.  Their arcane, single-word tune titles act as a guide as they bridge different musical worlds to forge their own beguiling soundscapes.  The harmonies created by the instruments as they interweave produce a ‘stunning mix of dreamlike atmospheres and mesmerising energy’.

The 15th century Crawford Room will provide an atmospheric backdrop to an evening of bewitching harmonies: come and be enchanted…

The event will take place on Friday 25th February from 7:30pm – 10pm. Tickets are £10.00. You can get your ticket via Eventbrite here 

About the Musicians 

Harriet Riley & Alex Garden’s debut album presents a novel, hypnotic dialogue between a highly unusual pairing of instruments: fiddle and vibraphone.  Inspired by arcane single word track titles, obscure definitions are presented to guide the listener’s attention through their original compositions, taking in trad folk, minimalism and jazz along the way. The album was recorded in Bristol during the summer of 2020 and released in November the same year. Their February 2022 tour features special guest Stevie Toddler on double-bass, promising to transfix audiences far and wide with their captivating new sound-world.

Vibraphone: Harriet Riley

Fiddle, Octave Fiddle: Alex Garden

Double Bass: Stevie Toddler
