Saint-Andrews-Church-Gothenburg-Saturday-7th-September-2019-Matinee-Performance_-12_15-60kr-Evening-Performance_-19_00-100kr-4

12:15 – 12:35 Hayley Reardon

12:35 – 13pm Ryan O’Reilly

7pm – 7:30 – Hayley Reardon 

7:35 – 8:20 – Ryan O’Reilly

Ryan O’Reilly (Oxford, UK) är en låtskrivare med irländska rötter och engelsk uppväxt som berättar skarpt om människor. Hans debutalbum The Northern Line – vilket släpptes av Qatars första skivbolag (DNA Records), har streamats över en million gånger på nätet och varit med i tyska radiospelnings topplistan – bjuder också på mörk humor och fatalism.

Hayley Reardon (Boston, USA) har en särskild röst och poetiska låttexter som är kuslig bra på att dra in lyssnaren till en plats av klarsyn och reflektion. Hayley har skapat och släppt musik sedan tonåren och nu börjar hennes musik nå en bredare publik i Europa.

Ryan och Hayley träffades i en gitarrbutik i Nashville i 2016. Ryan var där för att skriva låtar till sitt andra album I Can’t Stand the Sound och Hayley pluggade musik. I slutet av 2018 började de skriva och uppträda tillsammans och åkte på en lyckad turné i Tyskland och Danmark. I maj 2019 släpptes Ryans låt ”Good Enough” med Hayleys harmonier och musikerna planerar att skriva och spela in ett album tillsammans efter sin höstturné i Sverige och Norge. På turnén spelar Ryan och Hayley både själva och ihop. Välkommen hit!

‘Ryan O’Reilly & Hayley Reardon play original singer/songwriter music in the Irish and American style. Ryan is from Oxford UK and Hayley is from Boston in the USA. The pair met in Nashville and last year toured Germany and Denmark together. Inspired by great Swedish artists like Tallest Man on Earth and First Aid Kit, Ryan & Hayley are excited to be touring in Sweden together for the first time to sing harmonies together and perform original songs reflecting their real life experiences. This will be Ryan O’Reilly’s second appearance at St. Andrew’s Church, after 2017’s performance here with Canadian harmony trio ‘The O’Pears’ on a tour of churches across Europe and Canada.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

This Sunday the Parish Committee will be meeting and one of the items on the adgenda will be whether of not to extend our Chaplain’s term of
Service at St. Andrew’s beyond the end of this year when his current
licence with us expires. Chaplain Bruce has been excused from attending the meeting and will be leaving immediatley after the service in order to catch an afternoon flight to attend Diocesan meetings . This will
allow the opportunity for everyone to speak freely and voice their
opinions in this matter during the coffee following the service. Please
feel free to talk to me or any committee member  and your feed back will be taken into consideration when the  Committee meets that day. If you cannot be at church on Sunday you may email me, gunilla@ramell.com with
your thoughts.

Thank you for your consideration to this matter.

Sincerley Yours, Gunilla Ramell, Warden

In association with

Patrick George Sonny Holming was born in Harwich, England as the first of three children. His parents, father Hans Uno Holming from Finland and Mother Fay from England, settled however in Sweden and came soon to Gothenburg where Patrick grew up and received his formal education.

When Patrick was 4 years old, his parents bought an upright piano for 500 Swedish crowns at an auction. He immediately started to play on it… Soon after, he enjoyed his first instruction at the instrument. At twelve years of age, he bought a record with Beethoven sonatas. This became one of the peak-experiences of his life… From that moment, this music did not leave him alone… He now wished to have a grand piano. With the aid of the saved children allowance, Patrick got a Yamaha grand piano. Until his 14th year, the young Holming wanted actually to study natural sciences; however, after two trial weeks at a lab, he discarded the idea. He sought out a Swedish pianist of repute: Ingemar Hedvall and took lessons from him. He also enrolled for music courses that were then offered at the Swedish church and took lessons in organ and music theory, notably from Lars Nordh (Oscar Fredrik’s Church) and John Lassbo (Carl Johan’s Church).

He continued his musical studies in Austria where he studied at the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz, studying piano with Chung Lee and Annamaria Bodoky-Krause. He also studied early music, harpsichord and accompaniment at the Johann-Josef-Fux-conservatory in Graz with Margret Bogner. He has participated in several master classes, notably with Robert Riefling and Rudolf Kehrer. His piano teaching (1997) and Masters Degrees (1998) were both awarded with distinction by the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz.

In Graz, Patrick Holming was the organist of the Liberal Catholic Church and a substitute organist in Evangelical Churches. Further, he has taught piano at music-schools in Austria, researched piano performance and lectured various groups of pianists and piano pedagogues. From 2005 till 2016 he taught piano in Bangkok first at Chulalongkorn University and then at College of Music, Mahidol University.

He has performed as a pianist in several countries (e.g. Finland, Croatia, Malta, Austria, Sweden and Thailand). Currently, Patrick Holming is Director of Music at St Andrew’s Church and teaches piano at music schools in Stockholm.
