A Night Of Glass – Postponed

Dan Whitehouse with Gustaf Ljunggren 
at Ashburton Arts Centre Thursday 6 Junehas been postponed due to Dan Whitehouse contracting Covid 19

Described as a night of transparently wonderful music that holds a mirror up to the human condition, the human soul and the human heart.

Taking you from smart phone screens to Stourbridge glass making in its exploration of ‘The Glass Age’ in which we now live. This is where the light gets in.

Black Country singer-songwriter Dan Whitehouse has been in a reflective mood exploring the physical and metaphorical nature of glass – inspired by keeping in contact with his young son living in Japan, he explored how, in terms of communication – both positively and negatively – we have become a screen-fixated society exchanging virtual emotions with an emoji or a coded text. Our smartphones as indispensable an appendage as an opposable thumb. 

Dan is represented by Totnes music promoter Katie Whitehouse who runs From The Whitehouse and is not related but has an ethos of only working with artists that she passionately believes in – it’s not easy getting onto her books!

‘A Night Of Glass’, is a simple but hypnotic live experience in which, variously behind a piano or guitar Dan is joined by Swedish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren with slide guitar and an OP1 teenage engineering synthesiser (also performing music from his own stunning Floreana album).

Together, they take audiences deep into the heart of glass in its myriad manifestations, Dan’s expressively nuanced crystalline vocals, a hint of Bowie here, a touch of Cohen there, effortlessly mining a wealth of emotions and ideas.

A Night Of Glass is the melting point where art transforms but sadly the evening was due to be 6th June but will be rescheduled.
