Red River Dialect

 

Hello!

We have a few updates for you, some festivals and a special show in London.

We are playing the truly glorious Sea Change festival in Totnes. Organised by the people who run Drift Records, a great record shop surviving in a small town, it's a special event and we're happy to be playing there again on August 24th at the third edition after having a barrel of fun at the first installment. Here is a link: seachangefestival.co.uk

Then, we are off to south west Wales... to record a new album! After which we are heading to play at End of the Road festival on August 31st. More information here: endoftheroadfestival.com

We are excited about this capping of the half-year since Broken Stay Open Sky, and the laying of new seeds for an album that will emerge sometime in the second half of 2019. We will be playing those new songs at our favourite London venue, Servant Jazz Quarters, a two-set headline show on Monday September 3rd, a gig which will represent a temporary farewell... advance tickets available here: wegottickets.com/event/446461

A temporary farewell because RRD will be a little quiet between October and July 2019, whilst I (David) embark on a 9 month retreat, living as a monk in a Buddhist Monastery in Nova Scotia, Canada. I am currently petitioning for donations towards this endeavour, and if you feel inspired any amount would be deeply appreciated: theofferingbowl.com/petitions/733 We plan to come roaring back next summer!

OK, that's it for now. Thanks for reading, and if you are coming to those festivals in the U.K. please come and say hello, we are staying around for the duration of each one to relax and enjoy.

All the best

David M & RRD

 

 

 

Tours & Shows

We had a great time on tour with The Weather Station. There is a tour film in the works, for now have a look at the video below of a full band version of Khesed, from Tender Gold and Gentle Blue, as we played it in Birmingham last week.

We have a few shows coming up next week (all London-based). To find out more about the Rough Trade in-store show on the 16th, click here. We are also opening for Damon & Naomi and Thalia Zedek at Cafe OTO on February 14th - tickets are going fast for that, and we are on at 7.45 so eat your post-work falafel wraps quick sharp if you want to catch us. Click here for more info on that show

We are also thrilled that we are playing at both Sea Change festival, and at End of the Road festival this summer. Both have great line ups, with more to be announced.

Lyrics

We wanted to share the lyrics to the new record, Broken Stay Open Sky. The vinyl comes with a printed inner sleeve with the lyrics, but not so the CD, downloads, or streams. So here is the pdf, click to download if you'd like to have a look!

 

OH AND THE RECORD IS OUT NOW!!!!
