Leeds' finest free for all, NYC, Greenwich Village Style, Hootenanny.
Every Monday Dead Young Records' Gaslight Club welcomes the best songwriters, singers, acoustic acts, bands, performances and the more eclectic and eccentric elements of Leeds' (and more recently the world's) musical scene to Oporto or a hushed, candle lit soiree hosted by the incredibly gifted Gary Stewart and his talented friends.
This week we have: Adam Cleaver & King Eider "Absolutely Spellbinding." - Lauren Laverne BBC 6 Music "A voice capable of swooping up into the heavens." - CLASH "This guy is going places - no doubt about it." - FAME "Poignant alternative-folk." - ARTROCKER Following the success of his second release 'Man or Beast', Adam Cleaver is visting select cities in the UK and Europe for a group of exclusive shows. King Eider round their UK TOUR off with a concert in Leeds' wonderful Oporto. A folk-blues five-piece hailing from Edinburgh, King Eider craft a modern sound rooted in stripped back musicianship and classic folk influences. King Eider have gained a reputation for their energetic live performances, regularly filling venues in their hometown Edinburgh, as well as playing at established venues further afield such as King Tut’s in Glasgow or Koko in London. Live sessions have been performed on Tom Morton’s BBC Radio Scotland show, BBC Radio Scotland, London’s Resonance FM and twice on Gaby Roslin’s BBC Radio London show. Their Sofar Sounds video caught the attention of BBC Radio 6 producers who booked the band for the Edinburgh Festival 2014.
