Incoming: Damien Rice, Lambchop

SSO and Split Works' Contemporale series to begin in November

Damien Rice
The Shanghai Symphony Hall and Split Works are joining forces again for another series of Contemporale shows - the string of gigs that brought Bill Callahan, Moonface and Lubomyr Melnyk to the beautiful concert hall on Fuxing Lu last year. Things won't kick off until November, but the programme has been extended this time out, with artists including Damien Rice and Lambchop featuring in a series of six concerts.

The latest Contemporale series will begin on November 4 with the return to these shores of Bafta-winning multi-instrumentalist Olafur Arnalds, followed in December by American singer-songwriter Julia Holter.

Former frontman for alt-country outfit The Czars John Grant will restart the series in 2016, with a show in early March, before Canadian indie-rock act Destroyer take to the SSH stage in April. The series wraps up with Damien Rice - who has been knocking out easy going indie-folk hits since 2002's 'Cannonball' (watch above) from the platinum-selling album O - in May and seminal alt-country outfit Lambchop, whose 'Is A Woman' you can watch below, in June.

Tickets are yet to go on sale, but keep an eye on our events pages linked above for more details as we get them.
