Weird Walk presents Ley Line.
Questing for Myth, Magic, Music & Merriment
Linear trackways criss-cross this land. Ancient sites and places of deep mythic significance are connected and aligned. These ‘ley lines’ remain the ultimate in participatory landscape magic. Whether they are ceremonial paths, subtle energy channels or plain magical thinking, the power they hold is undeniable.
Our quest begins deep within the land of the St Michael Line. By following this numinous alignment, the touring musicians of Ley Line will perform a rite of reactivation: by day you are encouraged to seek out your own connections in the landscape, and by night join us for music, merriment and re-enchantment, a collective endeavour in the time of the individual.
Follow the ley and follow the music, join us on this quest.
Ley Line festivities will head west across four dates in four towns featuring live performances from Pictish Trail, Bas Jan, a specially created Weird Walk video mixtape & a DJ set from Guto Pryce (Super Furry Animals)
Tickets for each night are priced at just £10 and will go on sale Friday 10th of June.
Pictish Trail’s most recent, acclaimed, album Island Family explores connections to both place and time from the viewpoint of Johnny Lynch’s life on a remote Scottish Isle. “Island Family is wild, rangy and dramatic, as befits its staggering landscapes and characters through Eigg’s darker history” The Observer
“The psychedelic sound of the Inner Hebrides…absolutely love it” Lauren Laverne, BBC6 Music
Bas Jan is the vehicle for harpist, and Jarvis Cocker associate, Serafina Steer, violinists Emma Smith and Charlie Stock and percussionist Rachel Horwood. Their new sensational art-rock opus Baby U Know combines “Internal monologues, workings-out of philosophical positions, political despair and myth making. It demands & deserves undivided attention” Mojo Magazine.
