Happy New Year! Benedict Taylor has just invited me to be a part of this gig tomorrow night at Arch 1 in East London. I’ll be playing a duo set with Sam Andreae – our second outing…
The Favourite Animals large ensemble will gather for a one-off 2018 date on 10th December at City, University of London. I’m looking forward to playing this music again, with a nine-piece version of the group:
Dee Byrne – alto sax
Sam Andreae – alto sax
Tom Ward – bassclarinet/flute
Graham South – trumpet
Tullis Rennie – trombone
Cath Roberts – baritone sax
Anton Hunter – guitar
Otto Willberg – double bass
Johnny Hunter – drums
The concert is free to attend, but you need to register your place on the City website as spaces are limited….
I’m very much looking forward to this quartet gig coming up at Hundred Years Gallery next month. Come and join us for an afternoon of new music:
We filmed the Sloth Racket gig at The Vortex last week, and I’ll be posting some videos from it online over the next few months. Here’s the first one: Octopus…
You can hear another version of this on A Glorious Monster.
A video has surfaced of Rachel Musson and I playing our duo set at Arch 1 last month. Have a listen/watch…
Two dates to finish off the summer, both first time collaborations. First, I’ve been invited to be part of Unpredictable Series’ Alterations Residency 2018 at Cafe Oto Project Space. Over four days from 23rd to 26th August, Alterations (Peter Cusack, David Toop, Terry Day and Steve Beresford) are presenting a series of workshops and performances. I’m very flattered to be one of the guest artists along with John Butcher, Gina Southgate, Pierre Bouvier Patron, Max Eastley and Blanca Regina; I’ll be playing a duo set with Gina Southgate on Saturday 25th at 6pm. I’ve wanted to collaborate with Gina since she put her name in the Hat Speaks hat at LUME Festival 2017 (where she was doing live painting for us), and then played a brilliant set with an amazing collection of household objects as part of an ad hoc group. This promises to be fun…
A couple of days later on Tuesday 28th, I’m back at the Project Space as part of John Macedo’s excellent night SOLO:DUO:TRIO. I’ll be playing a duo set with Daniel Thompson. I’ve shared the bill with Daniel quite a few times and we’ve both played at each other’s gig series, but this will be the first time we’ve actually played together! Really looking forward to it.
Two dates with Benedict Taylor later this month, in North and South London. More info about Flim Flam is on the website, and you can buy advance tickets for the Raw Tonk showcase at V22 Summer Club.
