Reliably informed

One of a kind musician David Thomas Broughton is out on tour. His exhilarating mix of musical improvisation and performance art is headed to Middlesbrough’s MIMA and The Cumberland Arms in Newcastle on Saturday 2nd and Monday 4th December respectively.

There’s a raw unpredictability to his live shows, and his recorded material is dark but beautiful, marrying traditional folk with surrealist experimentation. Forever engaging on stage, he’s found a way to incorporate field recordings, acoustic guitar and loop pedals, as well as less conventional musical aids like a rape alarm, a mobile phone and garden vegetables. 

An extensive tourer, this is set to be another classic, with two shows for North East fans to make the most of.
