This will be a very special live piano-based evening with long-time friends Crayola Lectern and Heidi Berry. A rare chance to hear Heidi performing songs from her two Creation albums, ‘Firefly’ and ‘Below the Waves’, recently reissued by Glass Modern, not heard live since the 1990s and re-issued in 2023 on the Glass Modern label. This will include her best-known song from her Creation era, North Shore Train.
Heidi Berry has been recording and releasing her music since the late 1980s. Often awarded the accolade, “a musicians musician”, Martin Aston said of her, “Given how many singer-songwriters have ploughed the folk-fusion field since Heidi, her influence is doubtless greater than people realise.” And Ivo Watts-Russell (4AD) has comments that, “Heidi’s music is not about where she fitted in. Instead, it has great lasting value.” (Ivo Watts-Russell, 4AD).
Crayola Lectern, dubbed “the man of many faces” by Damo Suzuki with whom he has shared numerous stages. Piano-based pastoral psychedelic songs and transcendent adventures in the Canterbury tradition. Currently working on the third album, Disasternoon and rejoining the live fray after a three year hiatus.
