The Unthanks residency

All next week, I’m going to be hanging round the Band on the Wall like a bad smell, thanks to a ’Wall of Sounds Artistic Directors’ residency.  I’m one of 11 musicians selected to take part, we’ll be collaborating with The Unthanks to create completely new works to be performed on Friday 10th Feb (tickets/info).  I’m particularly excited as The Unthanks are ruddy great, and something totally different to everything I’m doing at the moment.  The collection of musicians looks like it’ll be an interesting mix too, I’m just doing some Google-stalking, here’s the list so you can too…

Sarmon Almond – Singer, Composer, Sonic Artist
Gren Bartley – Singer, Banjo, Harmonica
Tracey Browne – Singer, Piano, Guitars
Clive Hunte – Bass
Anton Hunter – Guitar
Raevennan Husbandes – Singer, Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist
Damian Kujawski – Accordian
Sam Lench – Singer, Guitar, Mandolin
Caroline Lucas – Violin, Composer
Hannah McCabe – Clarinet, Saxophone
Sarah Stewart – Percussion, Violin

I’ll be blogging when I get the chance during the week, so make sure you come back and check, or follow me on Twitter to not miss out.

New large-ensemble tune

I’ve recently recorded a demo of a new piece, currently called ALE, and I’m pretty pleased with how it’s come out so have a listen and let me know what you think, if you want.

Massive thanks to all the musicians, Simon Prince – flute/tenor sax, Anthony Brown – clarinet/tenor sax, Graham South – trumpet, Owen Bryce – trumpet, Simon Lodge – trombone, Paul Strachan – bass trombone, Johnny Hunter – drums, Paul Wheatley – bass and myself on guitar.

Welcome!

So, after several years of being hounded by my good friends Ang and Rod, I’ve finally set up a webpage.  Come on in and make yourself at home, so far you can read about me, and things that other people have said about me.  Not to mention where I’m playing next.

Things will undoubtedly evolve over the coming weeks and months as Rod & Ang pester me into further developments, not to mention all sorts of content being created, just for you.  The best way to keep up with when new things happens is to follow me on Twitter, or just the RSS feed if you’re easily offended by foul language induced by politicians’ behaviour, creationists or Manchester United’s lack of a creative midfield.

Thanks for reading!
