PinDrop Events are hosting a ‘pay what you decide’ acoustic gig on Saturday 29th October at NE Volume Music Bar which spans home-grown folk and ambient pop.

The event is headlined by Cara Sebastian’s multimedia project Lim Orion; Sebastian is otherwise known as a vocalist and guitarist in the rock band Shade Ray. Listeners unfamiliar with Lim Orion will be in for an ambient, roomy sound alternating between folk shapes and poppy abstraction. Sebastian’s lyrics combine elements of the rudimentary poetic and the instrumental: promising a performance that is sonically and linguistically articulated, the sound shifting between an atmosphere of folky and narrative coherence and total abstraction. The emphasis on texture is key to Sebastian’s music and lyrical matter.

Lim Orion will be supported by Natasha Graham, a Saltburn-based singer-songwriter with a memorable voice and songs more rooted in the folk lyric. The overlap between Graham and the headliner is a geographic, elemental preoccupation: ‘beaches’, appearing in Graham’s lyric and aesthetic and similarly sea and light being at the forefront of Orion’s album titled Cosmic Salt. The line-up also includes a performance by young artist Jasmine Weatherill.

Lim Orion, Natasha Graham and Jasmine Weatherill play NE Volume Music Bar, Stockton on Saturday 29th October. Lim Orion also performs at The Owl, Hartlepool the following evening.
