'Burden of Paradise' featuring Snake Davis
Sunday 6th October - 7pm for 7.45pm start
Helen Watson Snake Davis Dave Bowie
Sax man Snake hits the road in 2019 with his almost acoustic line-up “Burden of Paradise” for a series of intimate concerts.
Snake played the sax solo on Take That’s “Million Love Songs”, Lisa Stansfields hits, M-Peoples hits and was part of the most recent Eurythmics world tour. BoP was formed seven years ago with three of his very favorite musician friends.
Breathtaking skill, warm co-operation and witty anarchic banter. BoP invites its audience into a world of tenderness, virtuosity and human frailty.
No drums. Just voice, saxophone and a pulsing engine room of double bass and guitar. BoP’s unique interpretations of evocative songs from Dylan to Dowland are spell-binding.
We are all in paradise, if only we knew it. The burden is to accept it.
What exactly is the Burden Of Paradise’s secret? A stylish blend of precisely 47% blues, 35% folk and 18% jazz.
