MATINEE: David John Morris

£12 £10 Advance £5 MEMBERS

Red River Dialect songwriter David John Morris released his first solo record in May 2021. Titled 'Monastic Love Songs' it collected together recordings of the songs he wrote at the end of a nine month retreat in a Buddhist monastery in Nova Scotia, recorded at the Hotel2Tango studio in Montreal with Thierry Amar (Godspeed You Black Emperor) on bass and Thor Harris (Swans) on drums. This matinee concert will be the first time he has performed these songs live.

"seductive and deeply involving, hard-hitting in the manner of Nick Drake’s ‘Pink Moon’ or Richard and Linda Thompson’s similarly spiritual ‘Pour Down Like Silver’". 8/10 Uncut

"The transcendental acoustic glow of Red River Dialect is all over Monastic Love Songs, with extra contemplation and atmospheric jazzy undertones, echoing both Pentangle and John Martyn". - 4/5 Shindig

“Every so often an album will resonate with you from the very first line or chord” - Folk Radio UK

"some of the strongest work of the Red River Dialect frontman’s career. His richly rendered solo debut, Monastic Love Songs, vibrates with the energy and intimacy of his stay at Gampo, and it seems to light a way forward for Morris as a songwriter" - Pitchfork
