Si consolida l'alleanza musicale tra Mike Heron e il gruppo di Glasgow Trembling Bells con un nuovo intenso ciclo di concerti in Regno Unito sotto sigla The Circle is Unbroken: "Trembling Bells are an acclaimed Glasgow based indie folk rock band that reference late 1960s psychedelia and British folk revival acts such as Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band. Lavinia Blackwall’s soaring vocal style has drawn comparisons to Sandy Denny, and she took part in the recent tour ‘The Lady: A Homage to Sandy Denny’ which was televised by the BBC. Mike Heron is a Scottish singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, best known for his work in The Incredible String Band. The group built a considerable following, especially within the British counterculture in the 60’s and 70’s and were pioneers of psychedelic folk, integrating a wide variety of traditional music forms, blending rock, folk and world music into an atmospheric whole. A new Incredible String Band album ‘Live at The Fillmore 1968’ was released on Hux this year. Trembling Bells have worked with Mike Heron on a number of occasions and there is a natural kinship between them. ‘The Circle Is Unbroken’ debuted to glowing reviews at Celtic Connections in January, and celebrates Mike Heron’s legacy in his 70th year. The concert highlights their musical sympathies, as they exchange material in an evening comprised of classic String Band songs, and the contemporary tunes of The Trembling Bells."
