The Golden Glows: The Songbook of Harry Smith

The Golden Glows took the audience in tow through the wonderful ‘The Anthology’ during a long residence of AB Salon concerts. Not surprising, as the trio from Antwerp has immersed themselves in the Americana of the ‘20s and ‘30s for more than a decade now. They interpreted the collection with one microphone and a warm three-voiced harmony for six months long. 'Pureness’ was the magic word: acoustic and emotional.

Supported by genius synths, massive grooves and electronic soundscapes, the Glows bring Harry Smith’s masterpiece collector all the way into the 21st century. They found inspiration in the pop music of today to breathe new life into the pop music from back then. The band borrows style elements from hip-hop to demonstrate that Smith’s obscure Americana can still sound sexy, exciting and exceptionally relevant in 2019. Expect a deep dark glittering show.

On a previous visit to AB’s Main Hall, The Golden Glows wrote that their ‘Prison Songs’ would have the AB ‘in touch with the depths of its soul’. In 2019, they now shamelessly aim for your underbelly.

The Golden Glows:

Bram Van Moorhem (guitar, vox)

Nel Ponsaers (vox)

Katleen Scheir (vox)

Bram Weijters (synths, piano)

Frederik Meulyzer (drums)

Koenraad Ecker (soundscapes)

afgezien van de helse tochtnaar brussel( tunnel naar de wetstraat was dicht omwille van de brexit top vertrokken iets na 18u en nipt op tijd voor het concert. enhad ik geweten dat het concert voor 22u voorbij was, was ik met de trein gekomen. dan had ik nog de bus in leuven kunnen halen om thuis te geraken. over het concert geen opmerkingen. het was gewoon mijn ding en een mooie basstem als zanger. ik ga meeestal naar klassiek of jazz of wereldmuziek maar ditkon me inieder geval wel bekoren
