GET THE BLESSING
Jim Barr (Bass Guitar) / Clive Deamer (Drums) / Jake McMurchie (Saxophone) / Pete Judge (Trumpet)

"THIS IS TRIP HOP-INFORMED CONTEMPORARY JAZZ-ROCK AT ITS VERY BEST" (Time Out)

"SERIOUSLY CREATIVE ... WONDERFULLY IRREVERENT " (Mojo Magazine)

"THE MOMENTUM OF CREATIVITY IS UNDIPPED" (BBC Music Magazine)

Formed back in 1999 by bassist Jim Barr and drummer Clive Deamer (rhythm section of seminal act Portishead) alongside Jake McMurchie (on sax and electronics) and Pete Judge (trumpet and electronics) Bristol-based four-piece Get the Blessing boast a truly international fan-base, having forged a unique signature sound that defies easy classification.

Following the success of their 2016 album Astronautilus, jazz-rock mavericks Get The Blessing return the road following the realease of their spellbinding new Album 'Bristopia'. Blending their mutant jazz sensibilities with spacey electronics and post rock atmospheres, 'Bristopia' ventures into new, unexplored territories.

The Bristolian quintet channel subterranean depths and soar from dizzying heights, leading the audience through a complex labyrinth of tangled melodies and sliding soundscapes of dark, immersive production. Expect brooding and absorbing, haunting melodies and jagged, interweaving brass patterns from their new tracks, on top of their genre defying, edgy and brilliant fun musical ethos.

Get The Blessing send their sonic transmission deep into the furthest corners of the universe, setting the pace for the current UK Jazz revival, demonstrating that the early pioneers of the scene still have something important to say.


CEITIDH MAC
Ceitidh Mac (Voice and Cello)

Newcastle based cellist and singer-songwriter Ceitidh Mac blends soaring vocals and the deep, hypnotic sound of the cello to create a transformative sound that puts a progressive twist on the alt-folk genre. Originally from Wales, but now based in the North East of England, Ceitidh’s honest and intriguing lyrics have been mesmerising audiences in the know across the UK for a few years now. Ceitidh Mac has opened for the likes of Lankum and Laura Misch, and has had a busy festival season including sets at Knockengorroch World Ceilidh.
