Turin Brakes, Simon Roberts and Chris Helme
Lemon Tree Lounge
'Following the release of the album Outbursts autumn 2010 sell out Optimist LP anniversary tour 2011, Turin Brakes appeared for a few special one-off shows and festival appearances in the run up to recording their new album during 2012. The Turin Brakes duo of Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian along with long time band members Rob Allum (drums), and Eddie Myer (bass) will be playing a full band set of songs from their 10 year career and one or two new ones from their forthcoming album'.
Chris Helme has recently been described as 'Echoing the fragility of Gram Parsons, while flirting with the rustic side of Neil Young'. Chris plays his first Aberdeen show since the release of his album the Rookery (August 2012) which has received critical acclaim across the music business. The Rookery is a memorable collection of songs that should establish Helme in his own right and give him the recognition he deserves.
Completing the line up, Simon Roberts returns to the Lemon Tree after spending the last 3 years in London working on solo material, returns for a one off special performance of new material and songs from his old band Fivefiteen.
