Christine Tobin’s Blog #1!

October 12, 2017

CHRISTINE TOBIN - PELT_FRONT-COVERHi. Welcome to this new blog page dedicated to my 2018 UK tour organised by Right Tempo Agency & funded by the Arts Council of England. My latest album, PELT is a collection of my musical settings of poems & lyrics by the Pulitzer prize winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon. The tour will be the first time to really explore this music live & the band I’m taking on the road is amazing! I’ll have Gareth Lockrane – flutes, Phil Robson – guitar/electronics, Steve Hamilton – piano/keyboard/laptop, Kate Shortt – cello/vocals/deaf signing, Richard Jones – violin, Dave Whitford – upright/electric bass, Simon Lea – drums & of course me on vocals. We will also be joined by Paul Muldoon for one performance as well as by NYC poet Eva Salzman on 2 other gigs. Full details will be on my dates page soon and the first longer PELT blogs will be up here! Hope you’ll join us on the tour! Thanks.
