'tin tabernacle' tour duo bound for Burnham-On-Sea
husband and wife musical duo who are embarking on a unique nationwide
tour of corrugated iron churches, dubbed 'tin tabernacles', are
to visit Burnham-On-Sea in January.
Moss and Hannah-Lou will be playing at Edithmead's tin
church on January 15th, even though the maximum audience size
is just 15!
"The majority of these tin churches were designed to last
only as long as the local supply of ore, or until a permanent
chapel could be built, and the surviving few exist on borrowed
time," Trevor told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"Those that have survived are mainly still in religious
use, often evangelical and private missions continuing the tin
tabernacles' non-conformist tradition, although the vast majority
stand derelict, perched precariously between structural condemnation
Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England,
the pair will perform eleven concerts at the UK's remaining tin
"These concerts will once see people gathering beneath the
corrugated iron sheets, and hopefully inspire new usage for these
historically notable gathering places, and help towards providing
them with a future as colourful as their past."
Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou released their eponymous debut album
on 15th February 2010 on Loose Music. Their follow-up album is
due for release in April/May 2011 on Heavenly Recordings. Tickets,
costing £5 each, are available in advance here
and more details about the group are available here.
