The Trouble Notes – ‘Unity in Diversity’
Although many angry and noisy mouths are trying to tell you differently these days: There’s always more that connects us than separates us. That’s the simple yet honest truth The Trouble Notes are all about, not only on their forthcoming tour but ever since they started over five years ago. The pan-cultural mix of different musical influences created by violinist Bennet Cerven, guitarist Florian Eisenschmidt and percussionist Oliver Maguire attracts a growing number of followers all across the world. The Trouble Notes play over 150 shows every year. They are an adventurous collective that doesn’t know any musical or social borders.
“Unity In Diversity’ is the theme of the tour which brings the audience well known tracks of their 2018 debut album “Lose Your Ties” as well as brand new songs. Building and empowering a community is an important goal right here and when they say ‘community’ they obviously also mean Europe. “This tour is a testament to the importance of the EU to the continent,” explains Bennet Cerven. The European identity has bred cooperation and innovation and every form of nationalistic egoism should be opposed with determination. The Trouble Notes are the musical equivalent of that cultural understanding and they invite their audience to join them and become a ‘Troublemaker’ that holds society together. Because together life is just fundamentally better, wouldn’t you agree?
Manchester’s Good Habits take their recent venture as a duo, formed of Singer-Cellist and Songwriter Bonnie Schwarz & international Klezmer accordionist, Pete Shaw.
Sitting between folk and pop, the eclectic duo present an upbeat yet intimate sound-world of musical storytelling.
