    Willkommen Orchestra live: 20 piece band playing songs of The Miserable Rich, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Shoreline and The Climbers

    Sunday, January 10th, 2010

    In February the Willkommen Collective embark on a special project. We’ve assembled a twenty piece band and called it The Willkommen Orchestra. We will be playing songs from the Shoreline, Sons of Noel and Adrian, The Miserable Rich and The Climbers repertoires all arranged especially for the occasion. It’ll be the first time any of The Climbers songs have been played live, ahead of the debut album release this Spring.

    This is a one off project and we’ll be performing just twice:

    Friday 19th February at Brighton Unitarian Church
    Saturday 27th February at London Kings Place

    The London show is part of the Arctic Circle’s The Bubbly Blue and Green – a four-day festival of eclectic ‘water music’ influenced by shipwrecks, rivers, waves and lighthouses.

    Housed in the halls of Kings Place, the festival runs from the 24th to 27th February 2010 and features Philip Jeck, Janek Schaefer, Hauschka, Hildur Gudnadottir, ISAN, Samphire Band, The Sleeping Years, Iarla O’Lionaird, The London Snorkelling Team, Paper Cinema and The Willkommen Orchestra.

    Tickets are on sale with very limited SAVER SEATS available online at £9.50 for all concerts. Prices (unless stated otherwise): £24.50, £19.50, £15.50 Premium seats available.

    Tickets & more information available here.

    Sons of Noel and Adrian perform live film score this Saturday at the legendary Roundhouse

    Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

    The day after our Union Chapel show this Friday, the Willkommen fun continues as Sons of Noel and Adrian collaborate with Kopek to perform a live soundtrack to the 1928 silent Surrealist classic La Coquille et le clergyman.
    The event is called Think in Oceans and also sees the exciting new project from Caroline Weeks and friends The Collectress perform to Sergei Parajanov’s masterpiece, The Colour of Pomegranates. The organiser Ben Pritchard writes:

    “It was the Edwardian hero Admiral Jackie Fisher who exhorted his audience to ‘Think in Oceans’. Whilst this inclination may have served to sharpen his tools, it is a message which also inspired some of the greatest worldly discovers, and now lends itself to a silent film night taking in the wonders of Armenian culture and sexually driven members of the clergy. Ticking the boxes?”

    Think in Oceans takes place this Saturday (13 June) at the Roundhouse.  More details and tickets here.
