Tuesday 4th September
The Winning Post, Bishopthorpe Road, York
York promoters Green Chilli Roots are looking forward to a splendid line up of three duos at their next gig at The Winning Post.
Plumhall are Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall, a feisty Bradford based duo whose award winning self-penned songs have won them plaudits from the likes of R2 Magazine, Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff), Steve Knightley (Show of Hands) and many more.
The pair deliver guitar and harmony driven textures of folk, Americana and pop, and have have been wowing audiences on the live acoustic circuit in the UK for several years now. Winners of the Yorkshire Gig Guide Outstanding Songwriters award 2014, their debut album Thundercloud was hailed one of The Guardian and Observer’s Hidden Gems of 2014.
Michelle Plum is a former member of Chumbawamba, Waking the Witch and The Accidental Tourists, and in her own right has supported Aimee Mann, Capercaillie, Ralph McTell, Nerina Pallot, Texas and Shane MacGowan to name but a few. Michelle’s session work has taken her on tour all over Europe and beyond.
Nick B Hall is a member of the Hall Brothers band and has supported Fairport Convention, Hugh Cornwell, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, Glenn Tilbrook plus many more. He also provided session guitar for Magna Carta on their 2010 South African tour.
Together they will be appearing in the forthcoming feature film, The Runaways (starring Mark Addy, Tara Fitzgerald and BAFTA Award Winning Molly Windsor), for which Nick wrote an original song and both Michelle and Nick arranged folk music for two pivotal scenes.
Support comes from two more outstanding duos: Me, Thee and E who pair beautiful vocals with stunning guitar playing; and Broken Bones Matilda whose music is inspired by Americana and yet is also deeply rooted in the English countryside
Joe Grint from Green Chilli Roots said ‘We are very excited about this gig. I have seen Plumhall many, many times and they never fail to deliver a superb set of thoughtful and dynamic songs. To also be able to include Me, Thee and E and Broken Bones Matilda on the same bill is really quite something.’
