Electronic music outfit Morcheeba are set to perform new material live for the first time, as they headline a livestream event emanating from The Old Market, Brighton, this May.
The event, called Back from the Blue, will see the critically acclaimed band perform a mixture of classic tracks and new material from their upcoming 10th studio album release, Blackest Blue, which will be released on 14 May.
They will be performing alongside other artists including soul singer Kymara, rapper Bobbie Johnson, poet Rosy Carrick and musicians Kate Daisy Grant and Nick Pynn. The show will also feature routines performed by members of the cast of the show STOMP.
This will be the second event curated and produced by Brighton venue The Old Market, following on from their previous event, Phoenix from the Flames, which featured singer Alice Russell as headliner. The stream is part of the venues’ Reigning Women season of programming, which celebrates women working both on stage and behind the scenes in the arts and entertainment industry. The Old Market have also announced that a portion of the sales from the stream will be donated to the charity RISE, who support people affected by domestic abuse and violence.
Mark Gordon, Marketing Manager at The Old Market, said:
“Morcheeba are a firm favourite here at The Old Market, so when they agreed to headline our upcoming livestream, we got giddy with excitement! Add the fact that they are performing some tracks live for the first time ever, as well as five other amazingly talented artists, plus new routines from the performers of STOMP – it’s going to be a great night.”
