An evening of fantastic music and a delicious 2 course meal from the Lost ARC caf´é… What’s not to love!
Eira/Snow is a collaboration between Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen. Having worked closely together in a variety of musical forms over the years their close understanding, improvising spirit and shared joy of playing coupled with a harsh winter demanded action. Eira/Snow was born out of bad weather, warm fires and a long relationship and the resulting trust and understanding between two very individual multi-instrumentalists.
The group plays atmospheric music drawing on Scandinavian, Celtic and Middle Eastern influences, whilst having a clear new voice in contemporary music. The sound is contemplative; both gentle and strong with the ability to both relax, challenge and please. Improvision plays a key role in the band’s ethos often producing mesmeric pieces, occasionally underpinned with indian tanpura or founded on multilayered figures.
Eira/Snow embodies a wide range of instruments giving an amazing range of timbres. Instruments include Double Bass, soprano, alto, tenor and baritone Saxophones, Armenian Douduk, Turkish Mey and Zurnah, Hungarian Tarogato, Clarinet, and a range of percussion.
A 2-course meal is included in the cost of a ticket, with meal options to be announced nearer to the date but rest-assured that as always at The Lost ARC all diets can be catered for (please give advanced notice of any unusual allergies or dietary requests).
