Barnacles and Chris Tye at the British Oak

May 13, 2014

Chris Tye

Join us on Sunday 25th May for  an afternoon of free live music and sunshine* at the British Oak, Stirchley.

From 2 – 4.30pm we’ll have sets from London’s finest arthropod band, Barnacles and West Midlands-based singer songwriter Chris Tye in one of Birmingham’s best beer gardens.

Barnacles are a “male-female vocal duelling sitting prettily on top of delicate ukulele, electric guitar and bass ukulele arrangements that recall Kings of Convenience… a gently bitter sweet, pitch perfect performance that may bring a tear to your eye.”

Chris Tye is appearing ahead of the launch of his new album, The Paper Grenade. “Sweet-edged and soaring between melancholy and ecstasy, Tye sings of love and betrayal, dreams and fears, and is always full of desire to communicate… The Paper Grenade is urban folk music with lyrical intelligence, with heart and soul.”

*we can’t guarantee sunshine, but if it rains we’ll be under-cover on the patio.
