Event description
ARBORIST return to a Belfast stage for the first time since their album launch in Feb 2020. This is a SOLO SHOW full of old and NEW songs.

About this event

ARBORIST last played a show on the precipice of lockdown, at the end of February 2020, on the back of the triumphant release of their 2nd album 'A Northern View' (Uncut 8/10, Mojo ★★★★). In the intervening period, Mark has been working on the follow-up release set to be recorded in the US when feasible. This Autumn he will be playing a run of solo shows broadcasting this new material alongside the celebrated songs from the first two Arborist LPs.

Arborist came to the attention of critics with their debut single, the Americana tinged, “Twisted Arrow”, that features an astonishing duet with Kim Deal of The Breeders. Their 2016 debut album Home Burial was nominated for the Northern Irish Music Prize and released to critical acclaim, with Mojo hailing it as “a staggering debut of depth and substance ★★★★” and The Guardian calling it an “instant classic. ★★★★” Uncut described the lead single, “A Man Of My Age”, as articulating, “the claustrophobia of family life with sensitive frankness amid a mesmerizing Smog-like languor 8/10”.

Mark McCambridge played his first show as ARBORIST a few years ago supporting James Yorkston. A solo tour of Ireland followed before impressive performances led to notable support slots alongside Low, Cat Power, Echo and The Bunnymen and Guy Garvey.

The most recent ARBORIST album, A Northern View, was released in February 2020. Rich in melody and mood, it is resplendent with lush arrangements and underpinned by an uneasiness that unsettles the listener just when they’ve been lured in. The kind of balance found in records like Wilco’s A Ghost is Born or Songs Ohia’s Magnolia Electric Co.

Clash Music have called it, “A striking collection of songs, containing some of their finest work yet.” With Uncut saying it, “…skilfully amplifies [debut album] Home Burial’s pathos…a true Northern (Irish) star. 8/10” And Mojo declaring it, “…devastatingly bleak…upliftingly beautiful. ★★★★” With BBC 6music play from Cerys Matthews, Cillian Murphy, Gideon Coe and Steve Lamacq who called single Taxi, “one of those records that makes you immediately stop what you’re doing.”
