An intimate evening with The Rob Heron Duo. Hosted in the barn gallery at Upfront Arts Venue with limited tickets available.
Rob Heron and Tom Cronin don’t care what genre you choose to put them in – western swing, blues, country, rock & roll or whatever else – as long as you understand that they’re 100% sincere and 100% immersed in this stuff. This is no lazy pastiche, no dressing up box. They live and breathe this music and want you to get immersed with them.
This duo show sees them exploring alternative arrangements of their classic songs, alongside new music they have been working on through lockdown. Rob & Tom’s band, The Tea Pad Orchestra, are ten years into a remarkable story that now sees them playing venues and festivals across the UK and mainland Europe. The Tea Pad sound draws on myriad influences – from Hank Williams to Django Reinhardt, Tom Waits to The Beatles – yet ultimately sounds like nobody else, that North Eastern Swing style that’s utterly their own and changing all the time.
