RouteNote is proud to be associated with Falmouth Sound, a new live music event set against a beautiful waterside backdrop at Events Square, Falmouth Sound 2009 promises an eclectic mix of quality music from 21st-century indie, blues and folk to vintage reggae, rocksteady and ska for two days and two nights this August Bank Holiday weekend.
Brought to you by a passionate bunch of music and events aficionados who’ve worked their magic behind the scenes at the likes of Glastonbury, Beautiful Days and The Eden Sessions, Falmouth Sound brings you two days with two very different vibes to get your hands clapping and feet skanking – the ultimate way to send off the summer in style.
Saturday 29th August
Technicolour indie rockers and festival favourites The Wombats (whose single ‘Let’s Dance to Joy Division’ won them Best Dancefloor Filler at the NME Awards) top the bill on Saturday, supported by The Boxer Rebellion (who’ve outsold artists including Kings Of Leon, Coldplay and MGMT on US iTunes), finger-picking blues meets Ninja Tune man Fink, one of the music industry’s most non-talked about geniuses, Foy Vance, Ireland’s more sophisticated reply to Van Morrison, and Melo Park, the acoustic brainchild of Kosheen’s Sian Evans.
Sunday 30th August
On a completely different tip, The Wailers (the most famous reggae band in the world, who backed Bob Marley and have sold over 250 million albums) are heading up the show on the Sunday, backed by the two-tone power of The Neville Staple band, featuring Pauline Black – respectively an ex-Special and the glorious voice of The Selecter, and the mighty Gabbidon, offering a fusion of reggae, rock, ska and jazz styles from one of the founding members of the legendary 1970s band Steel Pulse.
Further big-name acts for both nights will be announced soon, along with local bands who’ll be gracing the stage on both days, when the event will be open for free to allow people to come and support the local music scene.
