Event InformationTwo of life's great wanderers JULIE BYRNE and MICHAEL CHAPMAN have a lot of time for each other. Chapman is an inspiration to Byrne due to his longevity as an artist who never stands still. Whilst Michael has been singing the praises of her latest album 'Not Even Happiness' and talks of being blown away by her unusual tunings when he first saw her play, this coming from the master is high praise indeed.
Now the mutual appreciation is set to continue as they share the bill at what will be a special night at the Union Chapel on November 13th.
Both artists released new albums in January to wide spread acclaim on either side of the Atlantic. Chapman's '50' (released on Paradise Of Bachelors), titled so to commemorate fifty years of touring, was recorded under the watchful ear of producer Steve Gunn and his undeniable late career masterpiece. Whilst Byrne's second album (out on Basin Rock) vividly archives what would have otherwise been lost to the road - bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast.
Both artists shine in the live arena. Chapman, who will open the bill, in full flow is a spellbinding experience as he builds hypnotic finger picked instrumentals on his acoustic guitar, combined with his impressive back catalogue of songs. Whilst Byrne enchants, leaving crowds mesmerised by her voice and warm presence, who find a real connection with Byrne's intimate songs. This feeling is often shared: “When the show has that magical spirit every person has contributed, even unknowingly, in creating a space of responsiveness to each other through vulnerability, through our unified experience and honesty about our sorrow and our emergence.”
Monday 13th November is sure to be one of those magical nights.
