In August I’m heading to Belgium to play at Sound In Motion’s Summer Bummer Festival 2019 in Antwerp! The festival have put together a trio of me, Dirk Serries and Tullis Rennie. A first meeting in this lineup, so it should be a really nice set. The rest of the day looks great too…you can read more about the festival on the Sound In Motion website.
New tour, new flyer! I’m pretty pleased with this one, which is a digital mash-up of Angela Guyton‘s awesome Catfish logo design and some hand-written/drawn text by me.
Anyway, it’s been a while since Anton Hunter and I – aka Ripsaw Catfish – have been on tour, but it’s happening this June. We’re playing four dates in the North of England and London. If you’re in the vicinity of any of the gigs, come out and hear us. Our second album Namazu, which apparently came out two years ago (!) on Raw Tonk Records, will be on the merch table too. Onward, Catfish!
This Wednesday 15th May, I’m playing in a trio with Tullis Rennie and Otto Willberg at SET in Dalston. It’s the second gig for this group, which originally got together last year for a gig at Liz Exell’s Jazz Herstory series at Poplar Union. I’m looking forward to playing together again! Otto and I collaborateid on this nice photo flyer (?!) for the occasion…
A nice gig coming up: on Saturday 11th May I’m playing in a quartet with Charlotte Keeffe, Benedict Taylor and Alex Ward at Hundred Years Gallery. This group will be a visiting ensemble at City University the week before, playing for a workshop with the composition students, so this concert will be a nice opportunity to make music together in a live setting. Timings and more about the musicians are on the Hundred Years Gallery website. Quite pleased with my flyer for this one!
On Sunday 24th February the trio of Olie Brice, Corey Mwamba and me will play at Hundred Years Gallery. This will be either its second or third gig, and the first one after a long break. With Corey retiring from live performance in March, we thought we should get a date in the diary. Come along for an afternoon of improvised music and a rare last chance to hear this combination of people.
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:
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.
