Sunday April 10th
José González and the
Gothenburg String Theory
one of Sweden's biggest-selling musical exports, José González will perform
with 20-piece orchestral collective, The Gothenburg String Theory. Unifying
José's beautifully introspective songwriting and expressive performance with
a multi-media music project like no other, this incredible collaboration
explores new and exciting terrain.
José González emerged out of nowhere with his debut album Veneer in 2003.
Since then he has taken the music business by storm, first gaining
recognition with the song Crosses, which featured on the US hit show The OC.
His popularity soared upon the release of his sensational reworking of The
Knife's Heartbeats in 2006 and the song has remained a fixture in the fabric
of popular culture.
José González 's warming voice comprises the focal point of his music,
surrounded by his subtle, yet virtuoso guitar playing. The song In Every
Direction from his band Junip's recent album was picked by Rolling Stone
magazine as #41 on their list of 50 Best Songs of 2010, saying 'Pale-voiced
Swede Jose Gonzalez kicks up the volume for a supremely pretty folk swirl.'
One of Sweden's most visionary art-music collectives, The Gothenburg String
Theory provided the musical score for some of Director Win Wenders' movie
projects and has been involved in numerous collaborations.

a solo show at the De La Warr Pavilion.
Father to Rufus, Martha and Lucy and husband to the late Kate McGarrigle,

career spans a total of 23 albums, including 2009’s Grammy-winning High Wide
& Handsome and recent topical release, 10 Songs For the New Depression.
Loudon's forthcoming career-spanning box set 40 Odd Years is co-produced by

Friday June 17th
Ladysmith Black Mambazo + Muntu Valdo
Mambazo marry intricate rhythms and harmonies of South African musical
traditions with Christian gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual
alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience representing every corner of
the religious, cultural and ethnic landscape.
Assembled in the early 1960s, the group have been performing for over 40
years. The group's intention has always been “To bring this gospel of loving
one another all over the world” and their philosophy is as much about musical
heritage as it is about entertainment.
This concert is part of the Bexhill Music Festival.
