December 16, 2017 : An evening with Nell Bryden
Part of the Amick Vocal Concert Series 2017 starring Mike Christie, Mary-Jess and Nell Bryden. £15 (£12 conc.) or you can buy tickets to all three concerts in the series for just £40. Nell Bryden joins the Amick Vocal Concert Series line up for her first run of Christmas live dates, hot from her UK headline tour in October. The singer-songwriter, New Yorker, adopted Brit, beloved album artist, Radio 2 favourite and now broadcaster will showcase tracks from her 2017 release and Radio 2 Album Of The Week 'Bloom' as well as stripped back festive classics from some of her favourite artists. Nell moved to London in 2008 and has since released four studio albums, all of which have featured heavily on UK radio. Her inclusive live shows have earned her a cult live following around the UK, this tour being the last time to catch a show for a while. There are artists who are independent in the music industry sense, and artists who are independent in mind, spirit and the sheer bloody-mindedness with which they’ve made something of themselves. Nell Bryden fits both descriptions, and has the stories to prove it. The funny ones...about thinking she was the next Maria Callas for a minute, or sleeping on a promoter’s couch that still bore the outline of the previous itinerant musician. The gritty ones…about 14-hour bus journeys to the next gig. The poignant ones…like witnessing 9/11, sacrificing her romantic life for years to pursue her artistic dream, and watching her hair fall out along the way. And the triumphant ones…like establishing herself as a singer-songwriter of real distinction and finding true love in the process. VIP tickets are available, including a pre-show Meet & Greet with Nell at 6pm, at all venues on this tour.
