The Great Hall Sessions at Dartington presents The Diamond Family Archive

24 October 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The mesmerising sounds of The Diamond Family Archive are set to fill The Great Hall at Dartington on Saturday 24th October for The Great Hall Sessions #3.
The Diamond Family Archive are a unique lo-fi, psych-folk, multi-instrumentalist roving ensemble led by the song writing of Laurence Collyer.
Live, The Diamond Family Archive craft a mesmeric live-show from drums, acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echos of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi.
Foot-stomping, finger-picking, hollering vs pin-drop hush – fragile, lazy grace.
“The atmosphere builds gradually, the sound rising and falling as the duo coax pulsing beats and a tidal ebb and flow of music. The natural world is at the heart of The Diamond Family sound and their songs shift like the seasons” – Zero Tolerance
“this mesmerising duo play a hybrid of traditional folk wrapped in melancholic psychedelic soundscapes that paint picturesque portraits of the English countryside” – Ave Noctum

Seating is at candlelit tables of 4-6 people (bookable in advance in social bubbles) where you can be served drinks and delicious food by the White Hart.

There are a few single/duo seats on the balcony, also bookable in advance. You can eat and drink at the White Hart bar before you take your seat/s up in the balcony.

To help these wonderful live music sessions continue we are suggesting a donation of £10 or more per table and £2 or more per balcony seat, and we encourage you to buy drinks and food. Thank you.

Doors, food and drink from 6pm. Please arrive before 6.45pm ready for the live music to start at 7pm. Please bring a face covering to wear when you are standing / moving around, or your exemption badge / lanyard.
