I See Rivers - UK Tour! (supporting Newton Faulkner)
We’ve covered the extensive Siv Jakobsen and Einar Stray Orchestra (solo) UK dates, and on the same night that Sivs tour starts in Reading, an even lengthier tour starts, with Norwegian band I See Rivers having landed themselves a prestigious and extremely exciting support slot on Newton Faulkners UK and Ireland tour – this gives them the opportunity of playing in some amazing venues such as the Albert Hall in Manchester, Nottingham Rock City and the O2 Kentish Town Forum in London.
Hopefully you’ll be aware of I See Rivers by now, but if youre not, they write beautiful and completely charming floating folk pop songs, with lovely and impeccably performed harmonies, and addictive melodies. They have such enthusiasm for the music they write too, which makes them really great fun to watch and listen to.
Anyway a particular mention for a gig in the midst of the tour, which is on the 19th April at 2ube Xtra in Liverpool, and is not a Newton Faulkner support, so it’s a chance to see them perform in their adopted home city. Check their Facebook page for more details.
It was just a few weeks ago that I See Rivers traveled across to Nottingham for a ‘Living Room’ gig kindly hosted by one of the members of UK band ‘The Wild Man of Europe’, and an interview along with the performance was captured by the excellent Proc-Cast team.
