The Daylight festival’s second season play host to David Hurn on Saturday 8th September (12:15pm). A prelude of sorts to his new album The Beautiful Trustful Future’ which is due for release on October 8th on Fire Records. Listening to his music almost redefines the phrase gentility. Such are the properties of songs like ‘No Love’ which give you that reclined feeling to such a degree you almost feel like you could drift away on them. Absolutely lovely stuff (if you doubt me, have a listen to ‘Jennifer’ on his myspace page…link below).
Also on the bill are Emily and the Red Clay Halo (1pm). Emily hails from Bridgetown in Western Australia and has already received critical praise for her album “Photos, Fires, Fables”. It should be quite a prospect to hear such a warm vocalist in such surroundings. Expect an effectively lazy blend of folk and country perfect for the fading days of summer.
As always it’s free, so if you’re in the vicinity you really don’t have any excuse.
