Get The Blessing

Festival: 2016
Event type: Music

Event dates:

Friday 23rd September, 2016 - 9.00pm

This Bristol-based four-piece boast a truly international fan base, having forged a unique signature sound embodying their wit, passion and free spirit – thumping tunes, monstrously infectious beats and joyous collective spontaneity. Their 5th album, Astronautilus, dedicated to the memory of Ornette Coleman, was composed between the crashing waves and deserted estuary sands of Cornwall, producing an album of pounding rhythms, spacious atmospheres and strongly-crafted melodies.

After fifteen years, Get The Blessing still boast their original line up: Portishead rhythm masters Jim Barr (bass) and Clive Deamer (drums) with Jake McMurchie (sax/electronics) and Pete Judge (trumpet/electronics).
