With The Travelling Band

View a photo gallery from Beirut's recent live gig at Manchester Academy 1 venue.

"With only a few shows on their UK tour, there is limited opportunity for those eager to see young Zachary Condon and his continental collective. It seems a diverse crowd tonight; a draw that can be expected from such an artist.

The lights go down and so begins accordionist Perrin Cloutier with opener ‘Scenic World’, and the ever-distinctive voice of Condon sings, “The lights go on, the lights go off”. It is not until the first burst of brass ensemble that one is excited for what might be in store from here."
