The Black Feathers
The Black Feathers –‘Mesmerising and stunning in equal measures – gorgeous close harmonies, two voices paired to perfection’
When The Black Feathers last appeared at Town Hall Live, in August 2015, they were just about to release their debut album ‘Soaked to the Bone’. The album met with critical claim on radio and the UK Music press. One year later they released a stunning live album ‘Live at the Convent’
The Black Feathers are Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler, who draw their influence from a number of wells, with Americana, folk and indie rock sensibilities co-existing comfortably in their musical world, with Ray’s guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands. The pure emotion and subtle timing of their song delivery is as evident as the enjoyment radiating from their on stage chemistry.
The duo got together in 2012 and have been busy touring ever since, enticing and captivating audiences as they go. In 2014 they released their debut EP ‘Strangers We Meet’ and later that year embarked on a seven week tour of America.
They followed that up last year with a two month stint in the States and also supported Eddi Reader on her Irish tour. They were busy throughout 2016 and it would have been easy to rest on their laurels, but instead have been busy working on new material which is due to be released in 2017.
Supporting The Black Feathers will be Paul McClure, the Rutland Troubadour. The passing world is the fodder for Paul’s songs, characters and story lines, in particular the loves, laughs and losses that have come his way. Paul is a true entertainer he writes some sharp lyrics, and is very funny. Here’s what Mojo have to say about him ‘remarkable songwriter. We should all work on making him the star he deserves to be’
