Hannah Peel + Will Burns

- (Doors: 7 pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Poet Will Burns and musician/composer Hannah Peel will be performing tracks from their new album, Chalk Hill Blue: a record of electronic ruralism channeling lives threaded through the chalk landscapes of Southern England.

Burns is poet-in-residence for arts-meets-nature-uptown phenomenon Caught by the River, and was a Faber New Poet in 2014. Peel’s ‘cosmic colliery’ electronica has explored a diverse range of inner and outer landscapes: refracting the science of both the human brain and outer space through analogue synthesisers and community brass bands. Chalk Hill Blue was produced by Erland Cooper who, along with Peel and their orchestral place-rock band The Magnetic North, has long held a finely-tuned antenna to the particularities of contemporary Britain. Burns’s words and Peel’s sounds – deftly fused by Cooper’s sympathetic production – channel the minute shifts in the air and atmosphere of a place, and their resulting emotional effects.

Chalk Hill Blue is released on 22 March, 2019.
