All joy and hail as those Trembling Bells play, sing and duel with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Together they will be performing a new collection of songs written by the Trembling Bells some of which appear on the forthcoming collaborative album ‘The Marble Downs’, out on Honest Jon’s on April 9th with a taster EP slated for release before this, as well as some covers and traditionals.
Trembling Bells lead vocalist Lavinia Blackwall will sing in duet with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Alex Neilson, the chief songwriter for the Trembling Bells, plays drums, while Simon Shaw on bass and Mike Hastings on guitar make up the pack.
Alex Neilson has synthesized his love of seat-of-your-pants improv and raw folk into his songwriting with the Bells. While Bonnie has long since shed the Appalachian dirt of his earlier records to enter a fertile period of grace. Now these paths converge on ´The Marble Downs´ – a triumphant exercise in major key ensemble playing concerned with minor key heartbreak, and a marriage of some of the most mercurial and imaginative musicians of our time.
