Never miss another 'Beth Orton' show
Beth Orton + Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards
The extraordinarily talented Beth Orton is back and ready to take her critically acclaimed album 'Sugaring Season' on tour.
Six years ago, Beth Orton was unsure she would ever make a record again. Going deeper into her art, her craft, Orton wasn't concerned whether the songs she was writing would be heard by anyone else. She certainly wasn't envisioning that a few years later they would make up Sugaring Season, arguably the most important album of her career.
The album is the culmination of Orton finding herself as a guitarist and a songwriter. Sugaring Season is her purest artistic statement to date.
Darling of the music press whose quiet, slow dreamy songs blend trip-hop breaks with folky guitar and haunting vocals. First noticed by dance music supremo William Orbit when a suitably inebriated Orton sang on his 'Strange Cargo' albums. There is a definite 70s folk influence, (Neil Young, Rickie Lee Jones and Joni Mitchell), which has effortlessly moved to the noughties.

Former vocalist of Absentee, Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards have been compared to "the grandeur of the Go Betweens" by The Times, while the NME say Dan “stands proudly alongside Bill Callaghan and The National et al”.

Joining them on ‘Memory are Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers (bass), Ali Friend (double bass), Gabriel Stebbing (cello), Johnny Flynn (violin and flugelhorn), Jin Theriault (baritone sax), Yusuf Narcin (trombone) and Christo Squire (alto sax).
