New Single Release
Released 18th August
Tomorrow Bird are an award-winning acoustic folk duo from Reading, UK. Their new single is a heartfelt rendition of Neil Young’s lesser known gem, ‘Birds.’ This song holds a special meaning for the pair, having performed it the very first time they gigged together back in 2015. It is a song about hope and connection even in the wake of loss and separation… In short; it is a song for our times.
Fiery Bird Showcase Sessions Online
Damian Clarke + StEm
Wednesday 18th August
Fiery Bird Music Venue
Our Fiery Bird Showcase Sessions Online continue (behind closed doors) on Wednesday 18th August starting at 7.30pm featuring Damian Clarke & StEm, live on YouTube.
Damian Clarke’s musical mission is to showcase the Dulcimer and Hurdy Gurdy, and to make them appeal to a wider audience than the folk scene, especially for younger ears. This can also be seen in his artwork . He likes to challenge pre-conceptions in music and art, to illustrate new thoughts, to encourage and inspire. StEm is an up and coming acoustic music duo. They write and perform melodic songs, with guitars, keys and vocals, which they hope you’ll like as much as they do. This series of events are supported by Arts Council England.
