Old Joint Stock Theatre - Sept 27th
« on: September 18, 2007, 01:41:04 PM »
Hello there
 
Please accept my invitation to my very first full length solo show.
 
Old Joint Stock Theatre, Temple Row West, B2 5NY - Thu Sept 27th 8pm 5
 
Now I've got some experience as a solo act I feel its time to have a crack at a show all on my own - I believe I've got enough good material to make it worthwhile, and the Old Joint Stock Theatre is a beautiful little 80 seater theatre, so I hope it will be a very enjoyable evening for all concerned.
 
I will be performing most of the meditative piano music from my Valentine Court album:

listen or download free at www.richbatsford.com

 - as well as a selection of original songs and in honour of the visit by Brian Wilson to Birmingham a couple of days previously, a small selection of tracks from the amazing album Pet Sounds.
 
Tickets are a fiver only and may sell out due to the smallish venue, so do please buy your tickets in advance, as soon as possible in fact, to avoid too many sleepless nights on my behalf!
 
You can buy online at http://www.birminghamboxoffice.com/index.asp?style=s&loc=whatson&eventid=321  or if you don't do the online thing, call the Box Office on 0121 200 0946 and reserve your tickets.
 
It would mean a lot to see you there and with luck the event will be as "utterly spell-binding" (Birmingham Post) as my previous appearance at the same venue.
 
Rich

"Each piece brimmed with an inherent sense of poignancy, and there even seemed to be a hint of post-rock in the repeated structures. With most of the material drawn from his album Valentine Court, Batsford created a spectral ambience which made him stand out from other composers. Utterly spell-binding."

Birmingham Post review of my supporting set at Old Joint Stock Theatre earlier this year.
