The Great Eastern presents

Echoes in the Well, Milly Hirst and Jacob Solstice

The first of a series of monthly gigs to raise money for Musical Keys, with:

Echoes in the Well - a unique acoustic four-some of wooden objects, strings, wit, and irony, they were finalists in Next Big Thing 2013 and have been developing a new mode of interactive performance, which Stacked Promotions has coined ‘passive audience participation’, involving the creation of inclusive environments in which their fans can integrate and become a part of their performances.

Milly Hirst - "a prominent figure in the thriving and Norwich folk scene, Milly Hirst's music has enchanted wherever she has plied her trade. Her voice alone has regularly proven capable of transforming “drunken chatter” into “rapt attention”. An inheritor of a musical tradition that includes Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and, more latterly, the likes of Alelia Diane and Dawn Landes, Milly’s pastoral songs of love, vulnerability, femininity and longing betray a soul and maturity far beyond her years."

Jacob Solstice
- best known locally as principal composer and leader of jazz/klezmer/other costumed misfits Discharge Lounge, Jacob will be playing a rare solo set consisting of solo jazz guitar with folk, gypsy and classical influences and a mix of covers and original material.

There will be CDs of the Great Eastern (Featuring Echoes in the Well and Milly) available and the whole shindig will take place in the beautiful medieval undercroft of Jurnets Bar.

Entry is by donation and set times will be:

8:30-9:00 Jacob Solstice
9:00-9:45 Milly Hirst
10:00-10:45 Echoes in the Well
