British Sea Power’s “Sea of Brass” With Fodens Brass Band

WE ARE VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE VENUE FOR THIS GIG WILL BE 'THE FACTORY', AYNAM ROAD, KENDAL.

After working with musical arranger Peter Wraight (Matthew Herbert Big Band), the chart-topping indie rock band British Sea Power will be performing their favourite songs from the past ten years in collaboration with Fodens Brass Band as part of a national tour.

British Sea Power are a six-piece band with members originating from Kendal, Yorkshire, Ealing and Shropshire. They have released seven albums since 2003 and are currently the longest-serving band/artist signed to Rough Trade Records. Their track 'Remember Me' was voted number 9 in the most important hundred tracks of BBC6 Music by the station’s listeners and have enjoyed an array of muscial endorsements from the likes of David Bowie, Jarvis Cocker, Radiohead and Flaming Lips.

This is the first time British Sea Power have entered a music collaboration with another performing group and this project has been two years in the making already. BSP are known for their sell-out rock performances as much as they are for their sensitive film scorings, including the recent ‘From the Sea to the Land Beyond’ which has now been released by Rough Trade as British Sea Power’s seventh LP and was voted Guardian’s album of the week in December 2013.

This project gratefully acknowledges the support of Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation as well The Brewery Arts Centre as co-commisioner along with principal commissioners Barbican Centre London and Brass: Durham International Festival.

This will be a standing gig and anyone with mobility issues are to contact the box office. 01539 725133
