The New Mendicants (UK/USA)
Finding themselves new neighbours in Canada, Glasgow-born Norman Blake and Joe Pernice from Massachusetts began a low-key collaboration in a Toronto tavern.
Their performances were marked by plenty of banter, open-tunings and sublime pop smarts. Now they bring their two-man show to The Famous Spiegeltent under the guise of their collaboration, The New Mendicants.
Between them, Blake and Pernice have founded Teenage Fanclub, BMX Bandits , Scud Mountain Boys and Pernice Brothers.
Performing together live, they delve into each other’s hefty back catalogues as well as their new material.
