José González & The String Theory

Colston Hall Presents at The O2 Academy Bristol

Since shooting to fame with his debut album Veneer, José González’s fragile vocals and unique brand of acoustic finger-plucking have mesmerised audiences across the globe. This time around, he is accompanied by maverick chamber orchestra, The String Theory, who take classical music to its outer limits. When González’s honeyed vocals and ”spellbinding talent” (The Telegraph) meet The String Theory’s ”luscious string arrangements and insistent brass”, the result is ”utterly beguiling” (The Independent).

Support from Jesca Hoop.

This is a standing Colston Hall Presents show at the O2 Academy Bristol, Frogmore St, Bristol BS1 5NA
