The Session: Soundtracks
Our BBC Introducing gig nights at Bar Four don’t half have some great bands on, even though I do say so myself.
On Wednesday, January 14 we featured Edd Keene (pictured), otherwise known as The Green Man.
While that name tips a rather large hippy hat at his British folk leanings, a great surprise is watching Edd play.
Close your eyes and you would be convinced there are 10 musicians up on stage – all thanks to something called a loop pedal.
The Green Man expertly records various instruments on stage – including a saxophone, a flute, guitar and a cajón – gradually layering each sound to produce something veritably orchestral.
It’s really a sight to behold and if you want to see it for yourself, The Green Man is playing at the Walkabout bar, off Friar Street, tomorrow.
Then on Wednesday, he’s playing at Deja Vu in St Mary’s Butts, Reading; on Friday, January 30, he’s at the Global Café in London Street, Reading and then the following day on Saturday, January 31, he’s playing the Cellar Bar at South Hill Park in Bracknell.
