21 April Friday – The catholics
Friday 21 April 2017, 8.30pm
Returning to Foundry616 for their first performance this year, The catholics bring their distinctive contemporary sound to fans old and new.
“It is their virtuosity, imagination and the inventiveness of Lloyd Swanton’s writing which makes this music so successful … no written description can do justice to this music.” Rolling Stone
Throughout The catholics’ beautifully crafted and instantly accessible pieces runs a strong, seductive dance strain found in the band’s various African, Caribbean, Latin and Eastern influences.Since releasing the stunning 2013 studio album, Yonder, their first recording to feature new member Gary Daley, on piano accordion, the band has celebrated exciting new sonic directions, while staying true to the much-loved and acclaimed music the septet is renowned for. Gary’s rich tones on the accordion add fresh dimensions so new and long-time listeners alike will be drawn in.
Reviewing the catholics’ performance at Foundry616 in December 2016, John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald) stated:
“More telling than any individual performance was the abiding sense of the band having a collective heart as big as a house. And it was this heart that was having the dialogue with the audience”. FULL REVIEW HERE
So whether you are a long term fan or new to this supergroup, come along and enjoy the joyous celebration of stories and music that these seven musicians irresistibly convey from the stage.
