Blur guitarist takes his Power Ensemble on tour
Graham Coxon has announced two new UK dates for his Power Acoustic Ensemble featuring Robyn Hitchcock and other guests, in addition to his London Barbican live show, which was earlier this month (September 4).
Coxon and special guests will now also play Manchester’s Royal Academy of Music on November 11 and Edinburgh Queens Hall on November 12, before the London Barbican Hall show on November 28.
Robyn Hithcock is confirmed for the trio of shows, with other guests to be announced. Londod already has folk legend Martin Carthy as well as Natasha Marsh and Max Eastley set to appear.
Speaking about his latest release The Spinning Top, Coxon decribes it as: “Mainly an acoustic journey although there is, of course, some explosive electric guitar action. I wanted to show how exciting acoustic instruments can be, how dynamic and rich and heart-thumpingly raw they can sound at a time when acoustic music seems either too cute or too soppy. Obvious influences here are the amazing Martin Carthy, the late, great Davey Graham and the late, great John Martyn”.
