North Sea Radio Orchestra - Frome Sunday 9th July 2017

Postby ickyqualms » Mon Jul 10, 2017 09:47

Last night the North Sea Radio Orchestra played the Memorial theatre in Frome as part of the Frome Festival. There was support from Dave and B from DextersExtraBreaksfast before the NSRO took the stage. Dexters are a Frome band who supported Arch Garrison (Craig Fortnum and James Larcombe) in Frome last year. They're a talented songwriting duo and amusing too.

Tonight there were seven of the NSRO (Craig - guitar, Sharon - voice, violin, cello, bassoon, clarinet and glockenspiel).

Had it really been five years since the NSRO played the Rook Lane arts centre in Frome announced Craig! It was quite a full house tonight with a few Cardiacs t-shirts and a Spratleys shirt too. :wink:

It started with 'the wound', 'berliner luft', and went through 'hole in the sky' 'the angel' 'phantom' and several more,ending with 'kingstanding', 'alsace lorraine' and 'morpheus miracle maker'.
The later being dedicated to Tim.

Described by Craig as a concert in four "chunks" the crowd were very appreciative. We got a little but of each of the four albums. It was nice the hear songs from their latest album Dronne.

I've seen them several times but last night it was nice to see a bigger ensemble and quite a long set too. Well worth catching live.
