Sunday 4 February at 2pm - Independent Venue Week & The Triangle present Dean Mcphee supported by Andrew Metheven
Regular price £8.50
Get ready for an extraordinary evening with Dean McPhee as he celebrates the release of his latest LP, “Astral Gold.” Known for his hypnotic and meditative guitar style, Dean crafts instrumental music that is both enchanting and deeply immersive. Recording from his Bradford home, he wields his Fender Telecaster to conjure soundscapes influenced by Dub, Modal Jazz, British Folk, Underground Electronic Music, and Psychedelic Rock.
This special gig, part of his LP release, promises a longer set filled with Dean’s fluid and understated guitar technique, renowned for its melodic, dreamlike, and trance-inducing qualities. Described as “channeling something much deeper, more timeless, and almost supernatural” (Anthony D’Amico, Brainwashed), his performance is a must-see for fans of visionary guitar work.
Dean, a key figure in the Folklore Tapes collective and co-runner of Hood Faire label, has been hailed as “one of the leading contemporary guitar stylists in the UK, and in the world” (Steve Barker, BBC ‘On the Wire’) and “one of the UK’s most interesting solo guitarists” (John Mulvey, MOJO Magazine). Don’t miss this chance to experience his captivating live performance, a blend of emotional depth and sonic spaciousness, likened to the works of Michael Karoli (Can), Daniel Fichelscher (Popol Vuh), and John Martyn. Join us for an evening that promises to be both transcendent and unforgettable. 🎸✨
Dean will be supported by the talented Andrew Metheven, a Bradford-based artist weaving lo-fi folk songs that resonate with the essence of both urban and rural landscapes. His music, rich in storytelling, navigates through themes of life’s peaks and valleys, from the literal hills to the metaphorical depths of experience. Andrew’s debut EP, “A Quiet Life,” released in early 2022, is a testament to his ability to craft songs that journey through life’s myriad experiences – from birth to decay, from daydreams to hard realities. His work, while striving to explore beyond the conventional themes of folk music, occasionally returns to the simple beauty of birdsongs, showcasing his versatility and depth as a songwriter. Get ready for an evening where Andrew’s soulful narratives set the stage for Dean McPhee’s mesmerizing guitar artistry.
