Win tickets to see Andrew Bird
We are giving away two pairs of tickets to see Andrew Bird on 8 June at the Old Fruitmarket Gallery Glasgow.
A rare Scottish appearance from the Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist and lyricist Andrew Bird to celebrate the release of his much anticipated new album, Break It Yourself.
Renowned for his jaw dropping live shows, you can close your eyes and you would think there were six musicians up on stage. Classically trained, he started playing the violin when he was four and his work was first acclaimed in the concert setting by the curious attraction of one man generating the wealth of sound normally produced by an orchestra, seemingly composing, or at least structuring the songs.
***** 'Break It Yourself is an album of the sea, of shifting sands and surging waves, sparkling spray and soft, contemplative calm.' The Guardian
Support comes from Mark Hamilton, part of the Canadian musical collective, Woodpigeon. The band’s sound has been compared to Camera Obscura, Simon & Garfunkel, and Belle & Sebastian.
