PREVIEW: Mellow Peaches @ MAC, Thurs Aug 29th

Mellow Peaches

Hidden amongst the laboriously clandestine MAC music listings (honestly, do they not want us to go???)…

Mellow Peaches play at the MAC on Thursday Aug 29th as part of the arts centre’s Summer Sessions finale – performing alongside Abie’s Miracle Tonic, on the Terrace (the old courtyard) from 7pm onwards.

A Midlands based song writing duo, armed with 12strings or more, Mellow Peaches comprises of Amit Dattani and Richard Harris.

Promulgating Blues, Roots and Country, Dattani and Harries celebrate Americana through their guitar, banjo and ukulele based portfolio; frenetic, ‘supple’ and with the occasional foot stamp. And they really like cake, apparently.

Releasing their first EP, Biscuits and Cobblers, in 2009, Mellow Peaches followed their debut release with the 11 track I’ll Go Down With This Ship in 2012 – recorded at Blue Whale Studios.

Self confessed purveyors of rootsy stomps and gutsy groove’ , Mellow Peaches have been building a name on the Midland’s Folk and Roots gig circuit, garnering much peer based interest and support.

After a brief jaunt round Belgium at the end of 2012, to promote I’ll Go Down With This Ship, Mellow Peaches have also played various venues further south since the Yuletide. Now back in the B postcodes, Dattani and Harris close off their summer with a couple of well-placed end of August gigs.

Mellow Peaches perform at the MAC on Thursday 29th – followed by a slot on the Moseley Folk Festival’s Centre Court Stage on Saturday 31st; the former being a free affair.

Johnny Kowalski will be at MAC for a Birmingham Review.
