Kathryn Williams is excited to announce that Neill MacColl will be joining herself and Simon Edwards alongside Jonny Enright (Keys + Trombone + Vox) and Richard Marcangelo (Drums + Electronic Percussion) for The Pond’s fully electric forthcoming UK dates.
Fans will already be familiar with Neill from his and Kathryn’s stunning 2008 album, Two, and some songs from that album will be getting The Pond’s otherworldly make-over on these dates. On their performing chemistry The Independent noted ‘They draw the best out of each other … Their telepathic understanding and vocals blend are breath taking.’
Kathryn has also announced herself as solo support for The Pond’s shows. This part of the show “Will be the quieter end of my spectrum” she reveals. “Mostly solo, and a bit with Neill MacColl. So there is a real juxtaposition between the two sets. I’ll be using tape echo and loops with my vocal - I’ve never messed so much with pedals and my voice before. Should be fun!”
During the tour the band will play a series of gigs in houses across the country. If you would like the chance to host a mini gig in your living room for you and your friends then listen up!
On each date of the tour the band will be available to play a short show before the main gig starts. To host a gig you need to live in the same city that the band are playing in and, ideally, live a convenient distance from the venue.
