Daniel G Harmann + Esperi – Tuesday 7th June

On Tuesday 7th June – check this out!

DOUBLE HEADLINER!

Once described as “rainy day makeout music,” Daniel G Harmann is just that. To sum up his music, think of it as that time you went to that house party in the middle of nowhere. Where you and your mates were lying on a trampoline at 5am, talking about life, using phrases like, “when this all blows over…” and “when we’re old…” whilst watching the sun rise over fields. That is pretty much Daniel G Harmann. Bloody good really. I cannot actually wait to wipe his merch table clean.

Check his stuff out here – http://www.hellotower.com/

Welcoming back to the Lost & Found stage, this time as a headliner, we present to you the wonderful Esperi. Esperi is a species of fresh water snail. It is also the name of an exciting musician who is most definitely worth all the attention he’s been receiving of late. Armed with more instruments than your local music shop, you are guaranteed Esperi will dish up some tasty treats for your ears and mind. Imagine early morning walks by the sea on a freshly made Sunday. Before a cheeky pint of IPA in the local of course.

Kathryn Sawers.

Intimate is a word. The only word that can describe how the gig on Saturday night in Project Slogan was. Crammed from wall to wall, the people of Aberdeen came in herds all with one intention. To swoon and coo over the beautifully talented Kathryn Sawers. Those who know of Kathryn’s work will know her appearances on stage are fair and few. Not to mention infront of a real piano too, thus providing the perfect setting for an intimate and rare performance from the lovely lady herself.  With support from the incredibly talented Fiona Keenan, and the wonderful Sarah J Stanley. It was a perfect night had by all.
Here are some photos from the evening. To those who were there, i can but only apologise about how bloody warm it was! Like i said, intimate is a word. 🙂

Big thank you to everyone who came along on the night. Extra special thank you to Dana Swanson for taking these beautiful photos and helping to document the night. Much appreciated! And to Fiona Keenan, Sarah J Stanley and of course, Kathryn Sawers.

Lots of L&F love,

xx

Chris T-T

This is going to be an absolute treat! The end of this month sees the fantastic Chris T-T come back to Aberdeen on a massive UK tour to support his recent release on Xtra Mile (home to Frank Turner, Dive Dive and local band The Xcerts), the brand spanking new “Words Fail Me” EP.

With local finger picking support from the wonderful Fiona Keenan and delicious Davy Shanks too! Wonderful stuff.

Now.. Here’s what the people think about him –


The Guardian –

“The genius of Chris T-T’s songwriting is his ability to humanise even the most outlandish conceits. They seem instead like brilliant ideas that no-one else could’ve come up with.”

Steve Lamacq – Radio 2 –

“Chris T-T is a man that we would trust with our lives. If he was standing for Mayor of London, I’d vote for him.”

Artrocker –

“Heartbreaking. Chris T-T can draw the poison and heal the wounds, simply by singing from his heart. It’s evocative, elegant and funny. How often can you say that about a record these days?”

The Fly –

“T-T puts the lyrical boot in with righteous wit and scathing laser-sighted accuracy. Listen to Chris T-T, he talks sense.”

This is set to be a great night. Please do come on down and support your local musicians, venues and promoters! WIN!

L&F love

Amanda xx
