On Sunday 15th December it is with great pleasure that we welcome Hunter Gatherers to the living room stage for the launch party of their debut album The Way Down!
About the artist
After two decades working with world music, jazz and ska bands, guitarist Peter Michaels formed Hunter Gatherers to unite his influences together in one group. Featuring friends on violin, trumpet and vocals, The Way Down ranges across stomping country blues, screaming hard rock, scratchy reggae, intimate folk and gospel. The songs touch on love and its ending, the catharsis of death, the crimes of modern warfare and social unrest. These threads are tied together by intense lyrical images, driving beats and ear-catching arrangements. They are also bound by Peter’s filigree playing on acoustic, nylon and electric guitars.
The launch party will feature an amazing lineup of musicians including Brazilian bass player Matheus Nova, Spanish percussionist Demi Garcia Sabat and Violinist and singer Agata Kubiak, as well as special guest singers.
- Performance from 3pm
