Last weekend saw two very different sell out concerts at Acapela Studio Cardiff.
Kicking off with the Stickmen (Tony Levin of King Crimson and Peter Gabriel fame) the Acapela audience were treated to a wonderful collection of Stickmen and King Crimson classics. The amazing Tony Levin on the Chapman Stick showed why he is one of the most impressive bass players on the planet. The high intensity and driving rhythms saw the venue “shaking” with the electronic sounds of the 3 superb musicians present.
On Sunday singing legend – Moya Brennan, the Voice of Clannad- produced another stunning show. Very different to the Stickmen the subtle sounds of the harp, violin, guitar and keyboards mixed with Moya’s incredible voice produced one of the most amazing performances of the year. The sound quality of the concert was truly awesome and as one punter was quoted leaving the venue ” the acoustics were stunning, like listening to a CD in my living room!”
All in all two concerts, very different but equally memorable. It’s what makes Acapela very special.
