Slightly late but a Happy New Year from Orchid-Star. 2015 was a very quiet year for us with lots of other stuff going on for individual members but don't worry, we have made considerable progress on the 3rd album which we certainly expect to have finished this year and as with the 2nd promises both continuity and change in equal measure. We are currently looking at gigs for the summer so watch this space!
Gutted!!! What would have been our first gig in a year - this Sunday in Battersea Park (hadn't posted as we were waiting for the set time) has been cancelled, not by the organizers Music4Children, who have worked hard to put on these lovely events but by the 'hosts' the Gondola Cafe who have pathetically blamed it on the weather (which is actually forecast to be warm and dry all day)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!! 10 years ago today we did our first gig in The Arches, for Planet Angel. Thanks to everyone for supporting us on our journey over the years - we hope you will continue to do so xxx
All really looking forward to playing on Cat's Cradle at Sunrise Festival this weekend, especially after a fabulous rehearsal tonight. A little rocky round the edges on the one new track - Heya - but I'm sure it'll be fun. We're on at 10.45pm Sunday
First time we've been on stage with Sandra for a year, first time we've done Wildflower with live violin for about 2 and the first time we've ever done Passion with live mandolin - all to look forward to.
Sean and Pete will also be DJing - Saturday midday, Tribe of Frog and Gaia Chill Sunday 5am. Pete and Myo will also be performing with Nathassia Devine on Cat's Cradle Saturday 6.30pm
Tickets still available as far as we know
