Green Note presents…. HAMELL ON TRIAL with support from RUTH THEODORE

PLEASE NOTE: This event will be taking place at our alternative home for the evening: THE LEXINGTON, 96-98 Pentonville Road, London, N1 9JB. 

HAMELL ON TRIAL
Headliner and one-man explosion, Hamell on Trial, is a dynamic performance
informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor.
Armed with a battered acoustic guitar that he amplifies mightily and strums like a
machine gun, a politically astute mind that can’t stop moving, and a mouth that can
be profane one minute and profound the next, Hamell’s caustic wit and
devil-may-care attitude has long been a favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop
Rock, Kimya Dawson, and has toured extensively with folk legend Ani DiFranco. His
performances invoke thoughts of the great, rebellious satirists and social
commentators of the past: Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks. There’s no
way around his obscenity but in that is a willingness to fight for the free thinkers of
the world.
“Bald, bold and superbad!” Rolling Stone magazine
“one man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply
offensive” – the Village Voice

RUTH THEODORE
No stranger to her own political standpoint, opening artist Ruth Theodore fascinates
audiences with her gripping honesty and distinctive lyricism. With a fistful of
unconventional guitar tunings, Ruth’s ability to move deliberately between pacey
political passages of stomping slide guitar, to moments of disarming humility and
beauty, is that of a skilled writer in command of, and having fun with, the idea of
contemporary songwriting. Starting her career as a busker Ruth has gone on to
perform alongside many great international artists including numerous performances
with aforementioned folk legend and label mate Ani DiFranco at the London
Palladium and Union Chapel, Dar Williams, Jane Siberry, Jeff Lang, Chastity Brown
and Rory McLeod.
“Having received critical acclaim for her four outstanding and unique records, you’d
be crazy to miss this chance to see her” – TimeOut magazine , London
“Confident and original” – The Guardian ****
