NEWS: Raf and O announce a virtual tour: The Tour Online 2020 – 2021


Raf and O AKA Raf Mantelli and O Richard Smith have announced a run of virtual tour dates: The Tour Online 2020 – 2021, see the full list below.

The say “In these strange and unsettling times we have set up a year long tour online, 48 shows, two Saturdays each month, two shows each Saturday, to allow for different time zones, the whole world is invited, we transport ourselves live into wherever you are and perform: come join us, we are Raf and O, we are The Kick Inside – The Songs of Kate Bush, we are Children Of The Bewlay Brothers (David Bowie interpretations).”

“Raf and O marked out their unique and widely acclaimed song and sound world over the last decade. The South East London duo have released four acclaimed full length albums to date (A Giant In The Snow 2010, Time Machine 2014, Portal 2016, The Space Between Nothing And Desire 2019). Hailed for their unique and compelling avant-theatre pop, amongst their explorations they have set music to Shakespeare, composed music for theatre and with special collaborations under their belt, they’ve played venues such as The Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Union Chapel.

Establishing a side project over the last two years ‘The Kick Inside – The Songs Of Kate Bush’, an interpretative acoustic celebration of Kate Bush’s early albums performed entirely on vocals, piano and double bass, Raf and O will be performing twenty-four shows dedicated to Kate’s music as part of The Tour Online. Having released interpretations of David Bowie songs featured on three Raf and O albums, received praise by Mike Garson, David Bowie’s pianist/ long-term collaborator for their unique interpretation of Bowie’s Lady Grinning Soul, celebrated the man live on wonderful and prestigious occasions and having dedicated an original song to him ‘A Bow To Bowie’ on their latest album, Raf and O are now launching their Children Of The Bewlay Brothers alter-ego performing extra renditions and interpretations of the man who ‘sang himself to earth’ on The Tour Online, exploring his work through a Raf and O approach and beyond.”
