with special guests from Chetham’s School Of Music

We are delighted to welcome My Darling Clementine for what will be unique concert, as they join forces with a number of remarkable young musicians from Chethams Music School.

No stranger to diverse collaborations Lou Dalgleish and Michael Weston King, since My Darling Clementine’s  formation in 2011 have worked with artists as diverse as The Brodsky Quartet, Graham Parker, and the crime writer Mark Billingham

Their most recent album is ‘Country Darkness – the songs of Elvis Costello’  –  a collaboration between Michael and Lou, and Costello’s long-time, right-hand man, and keyboard genius, the brilliant Steve Nieve. They have taken 12 Costello songs and re-worked them for duet adding their own inimitable style.

“Masterly cinematic interpretations8/10 – Uncut

“Costello’s songs, King and Dalgleish’s voices, Nieve’s keys… it’s a perfect fit” – American Songwriter

The Stoller Hall show will feature a number of the Costello songs as well as many favourites from the duo’s 12 year back catalogue, along with songs from Michaels’ recently released solo album The Struggle.

Brass, strings and additional voices will be added to their already potent mix of supreme song craft and vocal prowess for what promises to be a truly special night.

About My Darling Clementine

A labour of love on multiple levels, My Darling Clementine the sobriquet of spouses Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish began as a homage to classic country duets of the 60s and 70s á la George & Tammy and Johnny & June. During the past nine years they have played over 800 shows around the world,  won numerous awards and have more than earned their own bona fides, with their wry yet heart-on-sleeve song-craft spotlighting the vagaries of romance and the human condition,  and their match-made-in-heaven harmonies.
