Pete Lyrebird is the new musical incarnation for song-maker and performer Pete Reid, who formerly appeared as Pete and The Tar Gang. Driven by a rich, distinctive vocal and lush, spacious guitar work, the music can be described as a breed of atmosphere drenched experimental folk, featuring melancholic romantic ballads, sodden dirges, dark cabaret, gritty rock, and mystical story songs.
In this debut performance, Pete will be joined by a team of musical accomplices to present songs dedicated to the rogues who walk among us, and the more dusty and unkempt corners of the heart. Expect a musical experience akin to exploring an abandoned mansion: grand and occasionally beautiful, weathered by time and the elements, filled with stories in unexpected places. Special guests to be announced.
‘A classy performer whose deep, rich voice and world-weary expressions you’ll carry for a long time afterwards’ – The Scotsman (UK)
