So, we've just announced an intimate Paul Smith gig exclusively for babies and their grown ups. Paul will play solo for the first time in seven years in this very special day time gig which will feature material from solo albums, classics as well as some lullabies. Set to a backdrop of visuals he's creating for this unique performance, they'll be opportunities for little ones to join in on both percussion and vocals!
Paul has just returned from Chicago fresh from recording the new Maximo Park record and is squeezing in this rare gig before he embarks upon a super packed 2017 schedule.
About the gig Paul says:
Having attended the gig that Chalk put on with the band Warm Digits, I really liked the idea of a concert that both young kids and their parents could enjoy in different ways. I'm often onstage with lots of energy and high volume surrounding me, but there's a side to the songs I've sung that benefits from a quieter setting, which this gig will showcase. It won't all be lullabies though, and if any babies are still awake, there will be a few moments where they can join in on percussion and backing vocals! This will be the first time I've played alone in seven years, so it's also an opportunity to hone my rudimentary guitar skills, dig into my solo albums, and edge out of my comfort zone.
This event is suitable for pre-walking children and their grown ups.
