Rocks and Water - Local hero
« on: May 27, 2020, 03:24:22 pm »
what a surprise !

'Rocks And Water' - recording from Local Hero theatre production

As a special offer to Mark’s mailing list subscribers, you can now listen to the track ‘Rocks And Water’, from the musical theatre adaptation of Local Hero.

Mark wrote the music for the original film released in 1983 and it has now been adapted for theatrical performances. The show ran for 12 weeks at Edinburgh’s Lyceum theatre in spring 2019, and received standing ovations and amazing reviews.
Local Hero was due to be performed in London at the Old Vic Theatre this summer, but has been postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions. We’ll let you know as soon as the run has been rescheduled so you’ll have the chance to purchase tickets when it is safe to do so.
‘Rocks And Water' features Damian Humbley on lead vocals, and was recorded at British Grove Studio earlier this year with the following line up of musicians:

Music and Lyrics by Mark Knopfler

Damian Humbley - vocals
Dave Milligan - piano
Guy Fletcher - keyboards
Ian Thomas - drums
Ewan Vernal - bass
Donald Shaw - accordion
John McCusker - fiddle
Mike McGoldrick - whistle

If I realised that the chances were slim,
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

It's Mark playing guitar, right? He is credited only "music and lyrics".

I discovered a nice rendition that Isaac Shabtay (you might remember him as he followed the Get Lucky tour in its entirity, and I think also Privateering, and did a great diary of it)
did from this wonderful song from the Local Hero Musical:



I really love his approaching to it. I hope you like it too.
You might get lucky, now and then
