TOW on 6 Music - Mrs Pilgrimm & Legends of Flight

Every week TOW plays two songs for the brilliant Tom Robinson on his BBC 6 Music Introducing show... here are our picks from the last two shows:

Mrs Pilgrimm - Sheets

Just one woman and her cello, influenced by 'family, words and the heroine's journey'. Mrs Pilgrimm you are speaking TOW's language! The cellist, singer and poet has been quietly plotting her global takeover these passed few years, and it seems that Team Pilgrimm are gearing up for quite a year in 2011. Fresh from being selected to attend a BBC Introducing masterclass, an album is on the cards SOON. Mrs Pilgrimm would be a welcome addition to a quiet stage on a sleepy Sunday afternoon at a festival don't you think? Festival programmers take note!


TOW received an email from Laura Campbell, frontwoman of Legends of Flight, introducing the band and their monthly live music night in Liverpool. When this happens and the result is some fantastic music, it makes us quite smug as to the ease of our job! There are 3 in the band and they say 'we write songs about vampire shops, conker boys, being captured by seagulls, memories of lost days, lost love, lost birds and stolen shoes'. There should be an EP out in 2011 and if the songs on their myspace are anything to go by it's going to be a gem. The next Friend or Foe night is at the Gustaf Adolf Kyrka Swedish Church in Liverpool on the 28th Jan, and Laura tells us they've booked Hannah Peel for one of their night's too. Good times!
