US band include Church of Shropshire on European tour

THE Enablers will make their live debut in Shropshire next month.

The band have a long association with the county, releasing records on the Bishop’s Castle-based Lancashire & Somerset label for over a decade, but this will be the first time they have played in Shropshire in their 20-year history.

Initially formed in San Francisco in 2002, the group is now shared between New York, California and France.

They have reunited to make a new album ‘Some Gift’ and embark on a 40-date European tour at the end of next week and will perform at the historic Myndtown Church on Monday September 5 at 7.30pm.

Support comes from the Haress of Bishop’s Castle.


Haress channels traditional folk music through eerie atmospheric filters giving new life to familiar sounds. Their own album “Ghosts” was released earlier in 2022 to critical acclaim:

A review in The Quietus said, “It’s an appropriate image given that Ghosts was recorded in a disused watermill. This blissful psychedelia isn’t quite pastoral – there’s nothing twee about these unfolding grooves – but evokes water and wood, light and shadow, a forgotten workplace. and the absent human form with seductive grace.
