Newfoundland’s The Once return to The Met with their delightful mix of original and traditional material on Sunday 23 March at 8pm.
A hit at Ramsbottom Festival in 2011 and again at The Met in 2013, The Once’s music does not come from the noisy pubs and dockside taverns that fuel so much of Newfoundland’s energy, instead, it comes from a quieter and more thoughtful place. With their powerful yet uncomplicated sound, intertwining hope and tragedy whether they are singing an old lament from World War I, original songs that speak of love defeated, or tasteful songs from the artists’ whose music inspires them, the trio have won several East Coast Music and Canadian Folk Music awards
“The first time I heard it (the album), I was floored, the second time elevated, and everytime since entralled” – SignalBlog
Lead singer Geraldine Hollett, has an instrument of rare power; she is a singer who can still a noisy room. Accompanied by Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and bouzouki, the trio create a perfect blend of voice and melody. The Once’s live show is unique in its combination of intimacy and strength.
Tickets for the event are £12. For more information or to book go online at www.themet.biz or phone Ticket Office on 0161 761 2216.
