To coincide with Hux Records’ release of the Incredible String Band (ISB) ‘Live at Fillmore East 1968′ album, original ISB band member, Mike Heron is teaming up with Trembling Bells, to perform classic ISB material from their hugely influential first four albums, covering rare and popular material from the ISB song book and much more besides.
The breadth of the ISB’s appeal is beguiling, with admirers as diverse as Robert Plant and Rowan Williams professing a long-term love affair with the band.
Glasgow-based four-piece Trembling Bells first joined forces with Mike Heron in 2010 at ‘A Very Cellular Song’ – the Joe Boyd-curated celebration of ISB material at The Barbican, London. Since then they have played at Stewart Lee’s ‘Austerity Binge’, Cecil Sharp House and recorded a 7″ single of Heron’s ‘Feast of Stephen’.
