BEATRIX PLAYERS 2018 LIVE DATES ANNOUNCED + SUPPORTING ORIGINAL COCKNEY REBEL STEVE HARLEY

Beatrix Players are a London-based all-female trio whose unconventional but evocative music straddles the boundaries of folk, prog rock, acoustic, classical and pop music. The band are thrilled to announce they will be supporting Steve Harley Acoustic Trio, the original Cockney Rebel, across three shows at Cardiff’s Acapela Studios on February 14th, 15th& 16th; followed by their own headline show on April 22nd.

They will also be performing a warm-up London show at Camden’s Green Note on Friday 19th January before heading to The Robin 2 in Wolverhampton on February 11th next year to support symphonic rock band Serpentyne.

Beatrix Players recently released double A-side single ‘All That Thinking / Hurt’ in October. ‘All That Thinking’ being taken from their 2017debut album, ‘Magnified’, while ‘Hurt’ is a previously unreleased studio recording of the Nine Inch Nails song, famously covered by Johnny Cash on his ‘American IV: The Man Comes Around’ album.

The trio recently won the prestigious Limelight Award at the 2017 Prog Awards which took place at London’s Globe Theatre on September 14th, and performed Hurt live to an audience of peers, critics and industry insiders. The Limelight Award highlights the best of the talent that has emerged over the past 12 months on the progressive rock scene. Previous winners of the coveted award include The Anchoress, Messenger and TesseracT.

Through their enchantingly dark and evocative melodies, expansive arrangements and empowered orchestral sound Beatrix Players tell stories of real life and fantasy. Citing influences as diverse as Michael Nyman and Regina Spektor and drawing comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush and Einaudi Ludovico. There are tempestuous passages in the bands’ music that you can imagine being delivered by traditional rock instrumentation but it is the very  absence of guitars and drums that means there’s nobody out there quite like Beatrix Players.
