Pacific Curls, a band with an international reputation, appears at Epworth’s Thurlow Pavilion on Friday October 3, 8pm.
Pacific Curls make music that is both worldly and enthralling. With a cornerstone of backbeat Pacific rhythms, vivacious Scottish fiddle playing and evocative Maori instrumentation and lyrics.
The group has pioneered a fusion sound that seamlessly blends their indigenous roots, making classifying their sound a challenge.
Their use of jazz chord transitions, traditional Scottish fiddle tunes, expressive vocals, political and moving lyrics in both Maori and English, their use of world instruments with Pacific style beats and moods, shakes and bakes it all into a contemporary intriguing edginess.
They have made appearances at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games celebrations, WOMAD New Zealand , WOMAD UK, WOMAD Earth Station, City of London Festival and Borneo Rainforest World Music Festival – to name but a few.
Pacific Curls is a band that creates a window into the global sounds of the Pacific, Scotland and beyond.
The evening of brilliant entertainment will be brought to Epworth by LIVELINCS, the Rural Touring Scheme for North Lincolnshire sponsored by The Arts Council, England.
Those attending are advised to bring their own drinks and nibbles.
Tickets, costing £8 each, will be available from end of August at Serendipity on Epworth High Street and by telephoning 01427 872491.
