Flying high with local music at the Eden Café
On Friday, July 27, Cornish quartet The Dolphins Fly will be making its way to the Eden Café for a night of uplifting music.
The Dolphins Fly was created by brothers Dave and Mart Marney in 2000, who left Cornwall to follow the bright lights of the London music scene. After mixed fortunes, the brothers returned to Cornwall and were joined by drummer Billy Bowen in 2008 and Simon Smith in 2010, completing their line-up.
Together, they have settled into a sound full of warm harmonies, layered guitars and soaring tunes, which creates positive energy wherever they play.
The band will be performing songs from their latest album Prisoner, which came out in February. The album contains beautifully crafted tracks, influenced by the likes of Radiohead and The Beatles.
The Dolphins Fly will be supported by Mark Ryan. Mark combines the skills of a musician and a poet to create a magical performance that sits somewhere between the two.
Ashley Van Dyck, Eden Café Manager, said: “The Dolphins Fly played a brilliant show at the Eden Café last year, so we’re really looking forward to hearing some of their new material.
“With the addition of Mark Ryan, this is going to be a really inspiring evening of music.”
The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight with doors open at 7:30. Tickets cost £7, or £6 for concessions and tickets bought at the café beforehand.
There is a range of refreshing summer drinks available, as well as Sharp’s Eden Ale, and the kitchen will be serving great food, including the new antipasti platter, until 9pm.
