The Unthanks at The Roundhouse

Walking to The Unthanks-19

I went to see The Unthanks yesterday at The Roundhouse in Camden. For no obvious reason, and having been to see an exhibition at Tate Modern first (Conflict, Time – I only found it so-so to be honest), I decided to walk to Camden for the concert, taking photos as I went.

Here are a few, with the rest on Flickr.

The gig was fantastic, which isn’t surprising since Mount the Air is a terrific new album. More than that, the title track was a thing of beauty when they performed it second track in. It’s a ten minute epic and it’s just gorgeous. Rachel and Becky Unthank were accompanied by a band of beautiful strings and percussion. But special credit must go to trumpeter Victoria Rule. A wonderful night.
