The Blue Arrow presents: The Burning Hell & Randolph's Leap
The Burning Hell and Randolph's Leap (aka Adam Ross) are proud to present a joint Scottish tour in April 2019. This Canadian/Scottish collaboration will bring catchy melodies, intelligent lyrics and life-affirming performances to audiences across the north of the country. Having joined forces in Dundee, Inverness and Glasgow in 2018, the two acts are a perfect match, sharing a love of quality songwriting which celebrates the humour and heartbreak of day-to-day life. Hailing from Prince Edward Island, The Burning Hell have toured the UK and Europe extensively, charming audiences with their bass clarinet and guitar-driven whimsical story-songs. These dates mark the first major Randolph's Leap tour since 2018's Isle of Love theatre show which brilliantly showcased singer Adam Ross's songs and delighted audiences in Eden Court, An Lanntair, Banchory, Findhorn's Universal Hall and many other places during its Scotland-wide run.
Randolph’s Leap are usually Adam Ross (guitar/vocals), Adam Florence (drums), Vicki Cole (bass), Andrew MacLellan (electric guitar/cello), Heather Fox (violin), Ali Hendry (trumpet), Fraser Gibson (trombone) and Pete MacDonald (keyboards).
The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. This means both that no two Burning Hell records sound alike, and that the band can adapt to its surroundings like a karma of anthropomorphic chameleons, taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.
