NINEBARROW next live stream! 2nd May, 7pm, BST

On the 4th April, we gave our first ever live streamed concert. Boy were we nervous…but boy was it a success!! We were joined by over 2500 of you over on the website and another 500+ on Faceook and we have been absolutely overwhelmed not only by your feedback and amazing messages of support, but also – the generous concert donations that people made before, after or during the show. We’re so grateful to you all! 


The resounding feedback was that we should do more of these streams – and who are we to argue?! Something that really struck us after the last concert was the wonderful sense of community the evening generated. People here in the UK, the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Colombia, the USA, Spain, France, Sweden, Italy, Canada – the list goes on – all coming together for an evening of music – all chatting, posting photos, jokes, emojis…! All of us ‘together’, even though we must also be apart during these strange times. We can’t think of a much better way to spend an evening, to be honest! 
 

So here we go again, with a totally different set of songs! 😎​

We were so thrilled to get messages from people who were seeing us for the first time on Saturday. We know that’s because lots of you shared word of the concert with your nearest and dearest around the world – and we’d be so grateful if you’d all consider doing that this time too. Now we know the whole thing works – it’d be amazing to try and beat the viewing figures for last time! 🙂
 

  All the best – stay safe and well – and we’ll look forward to seeing you on the 2nd May! 😊

ninebarrow – Self-Isolation Live Streamed Concert 4th April, 7pm

Well – what a difference a week makes?! We really hope you’re receiving this email safe, well and staying positive in the face of this truly awful global crisis. It’s certainly been a bit of a roller-coaster for us, and we’re sure many of you can relate to that. We’ve had our wobbles in the last week – but we’ve taken the decision that positive mental attitude is the only way to approach a situation such as this. ​

You’ll have probably heard by now that we’ve postponed all of our concerts between now and the end of June. We’re in the thick of rescheduling all of those and we should be able to announce details of that very soon. If you currently have a ticket for one of those postponed concerts, your ticket will remain valid for the new date. If you can’t make it, you can just approach whoever you bought it from and a full refund will be issued. 

So that’s the slightly depressing bit of this email! 

But look – we’ve never been ones for wallowing in self-pity and we’re not even going to let something like COVID-19 get between us and bringing music to all of you! 

So, we’re delighted to announce that on the 4th April at 7pm GMT, we’re going to be broadcasting our first-ever live-streamed concert! 

Keeping live music going

It is a very challenging time for us all, where music can help soothe ourselves and bring out a sense of community, even if we can’t all be enjoying a live show in the same room. So this blog (and the Fifty Gigs In A Day one) will concentrate on highlighting live online music, plus new releases, from bands and artists across all genres.

Two shows today are That Joe Payne at 4PM GMT – expect prog and all sorts of musical delights

Then at 8PM GMT we have singer songwrier Tim Arnold which will be a treat I am sure!

Next Saturday folk duo Ninebarrow play a live streaming gig between 7PM and 830PM GMT

Bands/artists do get in touch and I will happily plug your gig, new music – whatever I can do to help.

FIFTY GIGS IN A DAY 2020 RAISES OVER £90 FOR NORDOFF ROBBINS

The total raised was £98.20, made up of £5 donation, £30 raised by Biscuithead & the Badgers at their gig and the rest was raised via eBay from signed items/tickets kindly donated by Ed Byrne, Billy Lockett & Paul Carrack.

Not as much raised as in 2019, however the social media activity was higher this year, which was great to see as the aim of Fifty Gigs In A Day has always been to raise awareness of the Nordoff Robbins charity and music therapy in general. Any funds raised has always been a welcome bonus!

It was going to be the last Fifty Gigs this year, however it is always heartening to see the artists & bands helping spread the word. I will have a look to see if a series of gigs throughout the year plugging the work of Nordoff Robbins, coupled with the annual day of Fifty Gigs on February 8 could work better.

Any suggestions on how to improve and/or gain more exposure for the event are more than welcome. Please get in touch via the contact page.

Still to come…

Dandelion Charm have a gig supporting the Emerald Dawn in Brighton on March 23, full details can be found here

Also Milton Hide play the Stag Inn on February 16

News – Ninebarrow join in with Fifty Gigs In A Day 2020 again

Delighted to have the talented folk duo Ninebarrow (Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardier) joining in again as they supported this year’s Fifty Gigs In A Day. They play the Holy Trinity Church, Sutton Coldfield on February 8th 2020.

They are relentless touring and you can see their upcoming gigs here

NINEBARROW May newsletter

It’s been an incredibly exciting few months since we last contacted you. Huge thanks if you’ve managed to catch us over the last few weeks. We’ve had a string of wonderful rural touring shows – all sold out thanks to you and the wonderful promoters that have been working so hard behind the scenes.

And you might be aware we also managed to win BEST DUO in the Folking.com awards. Thanks so much if you managed to find the time to vote for us. Being a public vote, it almost feels more special than some of the other awards we’ve been up for in the past – without the support of people like you, we just wouldn’t be able to achieve this stuff, so we really are truly grateful! 😊

And finally…we’re still recovering from a superb ‘double choir’ concert which we held down in Poole on Saturday. We were joined from far and wide – with people even coming all the way from Wales to see the show.  It really was a corker too!! We’ve got two more choir concerts coming up this summer – so do take a look at the gig list if you’re interested in catching one of those! 


The Ninebarrow Band is born! 

So THIS is very exciting indeed. We’ve had this one under wraps for a little while now, but we’re so excited to announce that on September 14th this year, we’ll be having the first ever Ninebarrow Band concert at the Towngate Theatre at Lighthouse Poole. With John Parker on double bass, Evan Carson on percussion and Lee MacKenzie on cello, this is going to be something rather special. We thought maybe you’d like to have a look at a wee snippet from our first rehearsal a few weeks ago. It’s a little clip of For A Time – our song about the ‘lost’ village of Tyneham. 



Poole Lighthouse is the same venue where we had our album launch last year, and it was such a wonderful evening – an amazing theatre and a full lighting show to accompany the band. We just thought it’d be fantastic to do it again and have the opportunity to not only recreate some album arrangements from over the last 6 years, but also come up with some totally new song arrangements as well.



Tickets have literally just gone on sale for this. We do understand that the south coast is quite a distance for many of the people on this mailing list, but we were delighted that so many of you were able to make it down to the album launch last year, and we can promise you – this is going to be even better. 😎 Click below for details! 



New dates announced!
 
And of course – we’ve just announced a raft of new duo dates elsewhere around the country too – and it’d be lovely to see you out and about sometime soon! Check out the map on the top right and, as always, find all our upcoming dates over at www.ninebarrow.co.uk/gigs.

Until next time!


All the best,
