April 28, 2011 Ass-crack Stage-hack
Get ready for another edition of ass-crack stage-hack on the 3rd of June in Havenkwartier Deventer. This time Stranded Horse is coming to play for us. And his concert will be supported by a new edition of The Diamond Exchange ánd a luxurious diner by Goestingjockey Jean Klare.
The French musician Yann Tambour started his soloproject Stranded Horse in 2005. Quite unexpectedly actually, since he was still very succesfull with his group Encre at the time. Between 2000 and 2005 Encre was by far the most interesting avant-rock band in France, with several impressive albums on the Clapping Music label.
Stranded Horse is an extremely gifted singer/songwriter accompanying himself on kora (a beautiful instrument from West-Africa reminiscent of a harp) and guitar. His music is sober, intense and has roots in folk and old country blues, but also in the tradition of the French chansons. On the arrival of his latest album ‘Humbling Tides’ (Talitres Records 2011) Yann Tambour enriched his kora play with arrangements for cello and violin.
Live performances by Stranded Horse are an enchanting experience…
The Diamond Exchange
After a very succesfull first edition of The Diamond Exchange in Het Burgerweeshuis, it has become clear that this is a more than viable concept. In this second edition Jan Willem Broek (DJ Senzor/Caleidoscoop) and Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis wil play their best records for eachother. Jan Willem Broek also wrote this inspired review about the latest album by Stranded Horse and has a vast music collection. Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis has an equally vast music collection and is a frequent visitor of ass-crack stage-hacks. Esc.rec. estimated a considerable overlap in matching musical interests between these two an they never met before, so this Diamond Exchange is bound to be an interesting first introduction. The Diamond Exchange starts early (18:00 !) and is scheduled to take place before and after the Stranded Horse performance.
Like before, there’s a dinner table in the concert room again. Jean Klare will treat the lucky few who managed to reserve a seat at this table to a delightful three course diner. Those of you who have attended a Goestingjockey diner before know I’m not kidding… this is pure tastebud pampering. During your meal you can listen to Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis and Jan Willem Broek getting acquainted musically in The Diamond Exchange. Please make your reservations in time (mail firstname.lastname@example.org), there aren’t that many places available!
