Marianne Faithfull & Marc Ribot - Special Acoustic duo show

Mar 16, 2012 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM


“I don’t really do conventional...” 47 years of creative public life and Marianne Faithfull remains one of the most unique, bewitching and indeed unconventional musical artists Britain has ever produced. In 47 years she’s grown from the quiver-voiced ingénue of her debut single ‘As Tears Go By’ (1964, the first song ever written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards) to her peerless position as profoundly distinctive scorched-earth torch-singer and richly emotive song-writer - as evidenced today on her 23rd solo album, the sonically stunning ‘Horses And High Heels’.


Marc Ribot, who the New York Times describes as “a deceptively articulate artist who uses inarticulateness as an expressive device,” has released 19 albums under his own name over a 25-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez. His latest solo release, Silent Movies (Pi Recording 2010) has been described as a "down-inmouth-near master piece" by the Village Voice and has landed on several Best of 2010 lists including the LA Times and critical praise across the board.
