Music


Tom Oakland (UK/CZ) + Martin Binder (CZ)

Friday 22. 11. | 9:00 pm | Cafe Portal

Pure foreign folk, country and blues charged with the rock'n'roll energy that will surely impress all fans of Bob Dylan, Glen Hansard, Creedence, Nick Cave or Bruce Springsteen. Tom Oakland is a half-British, half-Czech singer, busker and a member of Ukulele Orchestra jako Brno or Dead-End Co. bands. He mainly focuses on his solo career, travelling, busking and writing lyrics and poetry, drawing inspiration from his British and Czech roots. Martin Binder will offer heart-breaking songs, deep voice and guitar accompaniment. His English songs stand somewhere between Americana, Alt-Country and Folk while his lyrics reflect on love and finding one’s inner peace.
