first_imgTrey Anastasio has officially released the debut record of his latest project, Ghosts of the Forest.Ghosts of the Forest features Anastasio, his Phish bandmate Jon Fishman, Trey Anastasio Band members Jennifer Hartswick, Tony Markellis, and Ray Paczkowski, and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Celisse Henderson, who was featured alongside Hartswick as a backup singer at Phish’s 2016 Halloween performance of Ziggy Stardust. According to the press release, Ghosts of the Forest was recorded over the span of just a few days at the Barn Studio in Vermont in April 2018. The record was produced by Anastasio and engineered and mixed by Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White).Tonight, Ghosts of the Forest will kick off their two-night run at New York City’s United Palace Theatre (which will be live streamed), culminating their final shows of the inaugural east coast leg, before heading westward for two performances in California. The previous nights of the run have included several songs outside of Ghosts of the Forest’s nine-track album, spiking curiosity amongst the live music community.Trey Anastasio Discusses Plans For Ghosts Of The Forest Live Album On SiriusXMIn a recent interview with Ari Fink on SiriusXM’s JamOn, Anastasio explained that this weekend’s shows will eventually be released as a live album. With no scheduled dates beyond this April, it’s quite possible that Ghosts of the Forest will soon be but a distant memory.In the same interview, Trey explained the inspiration behind the album, his late friend Chris Cottrell.Chris was my soul brother. He was one of the last people I was really close with that didn’t work with me in some way. So, it kind of felt like more than a loss of an individual friend—it felt like the loss of a tether or two to a different era. I went in and visited Ray Paczkowski in the hospital around the same time that Chris passed away, and it was an intense time.We did Chris’ memorial service and his daughters were there with me, and then a week or two later I went and recorded the (Ghosts of the Forest) album. It’s raw, you know what I mean? It was still too early to—it wasn’t finished yet, the picture still wasn’t finished yet. And then I started writing more songs because I wanted to address the other side of the coin, which is more of an acceptance and bigger picture outlook on where we fit in this grand scheme, or something like that (laughs). Trey Anastasio – Ghosts of the Forestlast_img read more

In the case of Brexit, over 700.000 jobs in the tourism sector will be jeopardized

first_imgBrexit without an agreement would have a detrimental impact on one of the UK’s most important economic sectors. “The UK is the fifth largest tourism economy in the world. Given its importance to the UK economy, it is now clear that Brexit would have a dramatic impact on one of the most important sectors in the UK without an agreement.Said Gloria Guevara, president and CEO of WTTC. “If the IMF’s broader economy’s forecast comes true, Europe would incur a total cost of more than £ 40 billion and lose more than 700.000 jobs.” According to the WTTC, which represents the private travel and tourism sector globally, the tourism industry contributes more than € 1.5 trillion to EU GDP (10,3% of the total) and supports 27,3 million jobs of the total). In the UK, the sector contributes to GDP of £ 11,7 billion (213,8% of the total) and supports four million jobs (10,5% of the total). The WTTC analysis models the impact on the travel and tourism sector over the next decade, based on a projected 7,7% drop in economic activity in the wider British economy according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In this situation, Brexit without an agreement would result in losses of 308.000 jobs in the UK economy and 399.000 jobs in the rest of the EU and £ 18,6 billion in GDP of the UK economy and £ 22 billion of GDP for the economies of the rest of the EU.center_img According to a new analysis by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), more than 300.000 jobs could be jeopardized in the UK tourism sector and almost 400.000 in Europe if the UK leaves the European Union without an agreement on 29 March. In order to minimize such impact, it is crucial that the United Kingdom continues to have access to the single aviation market and that visa-free travel between the UK and the EU needs to be maintained. It is also important to maintain the mobility of tourism workers across the UK and the EU, and security cooperation would avoid lengthy border controls.last_img read more
