Music on the Levels concert 27 November – a stop on a national tour

Posted on 8th November, 2022 in

27/11/2022 @ 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Music on the Levels is included in the UK tour by singer, songwriter and recording artist, Chris Cleverly at the concert on Sunday 27 November 2022 at 3.00 pm in St Mary’s Church, Main Road, Westonzoyland, TA7 0EP.

Hailed by Folk Radio UK as ‘one of the most vital voices of today’s folk generation’, Chris’s songs tackle themes of climate/nuclear emergency, pervasive artificial intelligence, racism and mass displacement of people.

This tour takes in ten towns and cities including Glasgow, Hull, London, Birmingham, Manchester and Colchester and coincides with the release on 4 November of Chris Cleverley’s new album Broadcast The Secret Verse in which he moves away from the British Folk Scene that inspired his earlier sound, toward the American indie music which has characterised his more recent influences.

‘Expect the Broadcast The Secret Verse Tour to show his most positive and expressive work to date’, says promoter Matt Rochford. ‘Visceral and unflinching, he owes much to the music of Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, Anais Mitchell and Bright Eyes.’

‘The last few years have seen Chris’s musical and artistic identity grow and mature’, he adds. ‘He has gigged and recorded extensively across the UK, working with artists such Dan Whitehouse (Reveal Records), Eliza Marshall (Peter Gabriel), John Elliot (The Little Unsaid).’

Described as ‘impressive’ by the Daily Telegraph and ‘haunting’ by The Sunday Times), Cleverley was voted Male Artist Of The Year in 2019 by FATEA folk magazine.

There are currently no statutory requirements with regard to Covid and we are being a little more relaxed about numbers but Music on the Levels is retaining the informal booking system to help provide a comfortable and enjoyable experience for everyone and give an indication of how many cakes to bake! However, if you have not booked by the time of the concert, there may still be room for you.

Refreshments (tea, coffee, choice of cakes) are available at a modest charge from 2.15 pm until the start of the concert.

In order to help with the artists’ and other costs a raffle is held. In addition donations are encouraged. It costs over £350 to put on a concert.

Those wishing to go to the Chris Claverley concert are asked to contact Frank Challenger on 01278 699071 or email f.challenger@icloud.com.
