There was no Irish date on Matthew E White’s current European tour until now. Banter is proud to present a special evening of words and music with White on Monday May 4th at the Twisted Pepper, Dublin 1.

In the space of two albums – 2012′s thrilling “Big Inner” and this year’s magnificent follow-up “Fresh Blood” – the man from Richmond, Virginia has cast many spells and whipped up many storms with a beguiling, rich blend of sounds and stirrings. It’s music with an old soul delivered in new shapes with the kind of infectious groove at the heart of the matter which can win all comers over.

Aside from those two damn fine records (and a whole host of worldwide touring), White and his pals in Richmond established the Spacebomb collective, label and studio to turn the tunes of songwriters they liked into grandiose, graceful, powerful statements. Anyone who has lent an ear to this year’s fine debut from Natalie Prass will know they’re on the right track with that mission.

White brings his current European tour to a close with a visit to Dublin for an evening of conversation and solo performance at the Twisted Pepper. Doors open at 6pm, the event starts at 6.30pm and limited tickets are now on sale (the event is now sold out)
