Mal Webb at Miss Peapod's

6 July 2013

Mal Webb at Miss Peapod, in Penryn. Tickets £4 adv; £5 door. Time 8pm.

Around the world and into your brain, vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal Webb plays too many instruments in too many styles to too many people.

He gives solo performance a bad name, and that's Mal, whatever your language. Music that stomps all over stylistic boundaries. Ebulliently eclectic. Nefariously varied. Family fun free from facile frippery.

It's as grittily human as it is other worldly, as clever as it is stupid, as playful as it is ponderous. Using a world of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, chromatic harmonica, a loop recording pedal called Derek and the audience. Ani DiFranco said "You're a freak!" after Mal played support for her. He's like Bobby McFerrin, Aphex Twin and Cole Porter playing scrabble.

Date: 06 July 2013, 8pm.
