Something special for those joining us for the Three Cane Whale film evening Friday 11 May.
Kelston Records is helping Fairfield House put on a by-invitation-only Audience with The Last Poets on 25 May. The few tickets available will be long gone well before that. Contact William up at the Old Barn on Friday night to reserve yours.
One of the formative early influences on hip-hop music, The Last Poets are coming to the House of H.I.M Haile Selassie I in Bath 25 May
Friday 11 May it’s film night up at the Old Barn, Kelston Roundhill. We’re screening twelve short films made by thirteen filmmakers to illuminate Three Cane Whale’s live performance of twelve of their tunes.
You’ll be able to float over Lofoten, waltz through the wildwood and follow the further adventures of a strangely familiar trio of musicians reimagined as shadow puppets.
As well as eight full “Live at the Old Barn” albums – starting with the critically acclaimed Three Cane Whale – the Kelston Records Yuletide log has extra visual goodies. This includes sonic art by award-winning Kathy Hinde working with Eyebrow, and film showing the full intensity of Modulus III in live improvisation.
Hear the full ecstatic review for Three Cane Whale live at the Old Barn on BBC Radio 3’s Andrew McGregor show with Verity Sharp, including three tracks.
This first Kelston Records release is now joined by seven more equally remarkable subsequent “live at the Old Barn” recordings now available for the first time. You can get the whole package, with extra video and photo goodies, in the Kelston Records 2017 Yuletide Log (limited edition of 24). Be the first to own them; email us to reserve yours.
Kelston Records’ 2017 Yuletide log comes with eight high-quality recordings made live at the Old Barn. These are stored on an 8GB wooden USB stick, compatible with PC or Mac, transferable into iTunes or any other digital music service or device.
You can purchase the 2017 Yuletide log for £72. Or you can set up a standing order of £6/month for one year which gives you the log, plus Kelston Records membership with additional downloads throughout 2018 and as long as the standing order lasts.
The artists with full-length albums featured on the 2017 Yuletide log are:
Buying the log gives you priority booking and offers throughout 2018. If you pay by standing order you also get access to free downloads of any further recordings released in future for as long as the standing order is active (minimum 12 months).
The 2017 Yuletide log comes in the form of a combustible and biodegradable seasoned Kelston beech log. You can keep it, chuck it on the fire or on the compost heap. You can reuse the memory stick for storing documents, films or movies.
It’s an easy and effective way directly to support both the exemplary original local artists whose work is recorded, and also the collective project of location-based music based up at the Old Barn on Kelston Roundhill.
