The Glasgow-based psychedelic folk quartet Trembling Bells are set to play Oxfam’s Byres Road music shop on Friday June 11.
With fans including the likes of producer Joe Boyd and with rave reviews from the likes of The Times, The Observer, Q and Uncut, the band are riding high on the success of their second album ‘Abandoned Love’, which was co-produced by Stevie Jackson of Belle and Sebastian.
Recently returned from Brazil and faced with a busy touring schedule which will see them supporting Bonny ‘Prince’ Billy in the coming weeks and playing Glastonbury at the end of June, Trembling Bells will be using one of their rare days off to appear at Oxfam and help raise money for the organisation.
The short gig will start at 6.30pm on Friday June 11 at 171 Byres Road. Entry is free, but donations to Oxfam will be warmly welcomed.
Andrew McWhinnie, manager of the Oxfam music shop on Byres Road, said:
“ We’re really looking forward to Trembling Bells coming to the shop on the 11th. Having one of Glasgow’s best up-and-coming bands playing live is going to be pretty special.
“ All are welcome to check out the band, try something different to start their Friday night and maybe even buy a copy of their new album.
“ It’ll be a great event and all the money we raise from donations on the night will go towards Oxfam’s work to overcome poverty and suffering around the world, so anything people can spare, no matter how big or small, will help make a huge difference to people’s lives.”
