The Magic Lantern
Blurring the boundaries between folk, jazz and contemporary music. With support from Hearing Aid Beige.
Tuesday 14th December 2021 | 8pm
@ The Barrel House Ballroom
Tickets: £12 (+Fee) ADV | £14 OTD

The Magic Lantern is the musical moniker of singer-songwriter and composer Jamie Doe, an artist blurring the boundaries between folk, jazz and contemporary music. Born in Australia before moving to the UK at 12, his songs examine the limitless depth of human experience with devastating, joyous results.

His upcoming fourth album ‘A Reckoning Bell’, written and recorded while helping to care for his father with Alzheimers disease, sees Jamie turn to the piano to explore what loss can teach us about love and how love’s many small acts give a life meaning. The result is a study in masculine vulnerability that sits with and acknowledges the inevitability of a loss witnessed in slow motion and the unexpected moments of joy that sustain us.

Performing with a full band drawn from London’s genre-bending jazz scene, The Magic Lantern’s live show is a rich, cathartic and moving experience dedicated to addressing the fear and anxiety present in us all.

Plus support from Hearing Aid Beige.
