Maz O’Connor – The Longing Kind Tour
BBC Folk Award nominee Maz O’Connor returns to Forum 28 on Thursday 11 Feb. Accompanied by Laura Cannivick on fiddle and banjo, and John Parker on double bass she will be performing songs form her new album ‘The Longing Kind’, exploring themes of longing, belonging, home, family and identity. The album is released on Feb 26.
Performing a mixture of traditional, re-worked folk songs and her own thoughtful, poetic compositions, Maz accompanies herself on guitar, tenor guitar, piano and shruti box, but it is her uniquely pure voice that really makes her stand out.
‘The Longing Kind Tour’ is a mixture of songs, poems, stories, family memories and some light audience participation. The songs have been crafted into a show that invites the audience to join the musicians on an exploration of nostalgia, youth and what it means to be at home.
Tickets are £10. Phone: 01229 820000. She plays Staveley Roundhouse near Kendal on the following night 12 February. Tickets are £15.
