MICHAEL MARRA AND MR MCFALL'S CHAMBER - MAY 2010 TOUR Saturday April 3 2010, 1:00 AM

From press blurb for the tour with Mr McFall's Chamber -

"Michael Marra and Mr McFall's Chamber bring a mixed programme which includes
not only a dozen or so of Michael Marra's songs, but also some instrumental numbers -
accordion music from Finland, 19th century salon music from Cuba,
folk-influenced classical music from the Czech Republic, tango music from
Argentina. Instrumentation switches between musical saw, accordion, harmonium,
keyboard, guitar, mandolin, bass guitar, double bass and string quartet.

Mr McFall's Chamber and Michael Marra first performed together at the last of

the famous None of the Above events at the old Bongo Club in Edinburgh. Since
that time they have been getting together when schedules permit and have built
up a repertoire which encompasses not only Michael Marra's witty, poignant and
finely observed songs, but also Mr McFall's Chamber's typically diverse
repertoire. Composers included in the programme are Argentine tango virtuoso
Astor Piazzolla, Finnish folk musician Timo Alakotila, Antonin Dvorak and 19th
century Cuban violinist José White.
