Guateque Town: Guilty pleasures

  • Music, Folk, country and blues

Time Out says

For more than ten years Guateque Town has been winning and breaking hearts in Barcelona with their darkly comic take on life in songs that range from vintage pop, country and swing classics to Tom Waits as well as their own original material, all sung in the sort of close harmony that gives you goosebumps. The multinational band is made up of New Zealander Sarah Davison on vocals, guitar, ukelele, tap shoes, flute and percussion; Liverpudlian Helen Rowson, from the successful Barcelona acapella group Stupendams, on vocals, keyboards, guitar, washboard, spoons and stylophone; Barcelona’s very own Larry Magrinyà on guitars; and María Eugenia Araya from Argentina on electric and double bass.

This time around it's guilty pleasures – a shameless celebration of all those songs we love in secret, featuring gems such as bossa nova Hollies, hits by Petula Clarke, Glenn Campbell compositions sung with rich harmony, and ukelele and washboard symphonies of classics by dearly departed heroes Prince, George Michael and David Bowie. And don't miss the infamous Guateque Town dancers...
