Friday 26 January:
Christine Tobin presents PELT

Now based in New York, award winning singer Christine Tobin makes a rare return visit to the UK with her latest project. PELT is a unique, genre-busting concert for lovers of song, poetry and daring musicianship, featuring Christine Tobin’s settings of poems and lyrics by contemporary Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Paul Muldoon.

Although a continuation of Christine’s fascination with fine words and music, PELT marks a new direction and a new musical soundscape. BBC Music Magazine described it as “…feisty original music written by Tobin for a programme that covers the Americana waterfront. The album is a masterclass in songcraft.”

Christine Tobin (voice and composer), Richard Jones (violin), Kate Shortt (cello and backing vocals), Gareth Lockrane (flutes), Phil Robson (guitar), Steve Hamilton (piano, keyboard & laptop), Dave Whitford (double basses), Simon Lea (drums).

Tickets: £12 advance, £13 door, £1 reduction for Friends of Calstock Arts, £8 under 18s and unwaged.
