Nobody sounds like the highly innovative Henry and Martin and few can have come up with a tour as different as this. The 10-date Out of the Ordinarytour (May 10-27) will see the award-winning pair weaving their musical wizardry across England and Wales, performing at some totally unpredictable locations. Churches will jostle with caverns, Iron Age roundhouses with ancient hostelries, steam museums with labyrinthine Liverpool tunnels as they perform in 10 different counties from Cornwall to Co.Durham.
Says Hannah: “We are really looking forward to taking our music to these magical places. We have always drawn on many musical styles and regional influences so it seemed apt to seek out some of the more unusual places that have shaped our island’s rich and diverse history.”
“Some of the venues are part of our industrial heritage, like the Great Western Railway Steam Museum; then there are mysterious places created for unknown reasons like the Williamson Tunnels – and all human life is in the fabrics of these buildings, from convicts to philanthropists.”
The tour kicks off at Cardiff’s Norwegian Church on Wednesday, May 10 and finishes over the late May Bank Holiday at Buster Ancient Farm in Hampshire.
