The Symphonic Grace tour will see Paloma Faith team up with 42-piece Guy Barker Orchestra to present full-blown orchestral arrangements of her own material intermingled with classic jazz ballads, backing singers and fabulous costumes.

This tour will see Guy and Paloma reprise some of the material they have covered in the past, but will also include new orchestral arrangements of Paloma’s latest album, the Brit-nominated album, Fall to Grace, including the hits Picking Up The Pieces and 30 Minute Love Affair, as well as a few other surprises on the way.

Having worked with Paloma Faith on Jazz Voice, led composer Guy into discussions about touring with her and Music Beyond Mainstream became the natural partner for the project.

Guy Barker said: “Paloma Faith is a truly remarkable artist and an amazing performer, loved by her fans and also a huge favourite with many other great artists. So on this very special tour she with be collaborating with the dramatic forces of an orchestra made up of 42 world class musicians. The tour will feature specially arranged orchestral versions of songs from her highly acclaimed album Fall to Grace, plus many other songs.

With the orchestra and her backing singers there will be a total of 46 people on stage. This promises to be a truly spectacular evening.”

The Symphonic Grace is yet another bold step in Paloma’s adventurous career.

Paloma said: “I’m so excited to performing with Guy again and looking forward to putting a new spin on the songs with the new orchestral arrangements.”

The show will be at the Royal Concert Hall Nottingham on Saturday, October 26. Tickets are £29.50 - £19.50. go to www.trch.co.uk for more.
