Kathryn Williams presents The Pond gigs and special guests
Story by Jack Foley
KATHRYN Williams is excited to announce that Neill MacColl will be joining herself and Simon Edwards alongside Jonny Enright (Keys + Trombone + Vox) and Richard Marcangelo (Drums + Electronic Percussion) for The Pond’s fully electric forthcoming UK date.
MacColl will be replacing Ginny Clee who has had to drop out of live activity for personal reasons.
Fans will already be familiar with Neill from his and Kathryn’s stunning 2008 album, Two, and some songs from that album will be getting The Pond’s otherworldly make-over on these dates.
Says Kathryn: “We will also be ‘ponding up’ some older songs, like Just Leave from The Quickening, All Apologies – the Nirvana track from Relations – and even a couple of songs from the first record, Dog Leap Stairs.”
Kathryn has also announced herself as solo support for The Pond’s shows.
This part of the show “will be the quieter end of my spectrum”, she reveals.
“Mostly solo, and a bit with Neill MacColl. So, there is a real juxtaposition between the two sets,” she continued. “I’ll be using tape echo and loops with my vocal – I’ve never messed so much with pedals and my voice before. Should be fun!”
