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.

  1. Well done Anton!

    Do you already know Sam? We worked with Sam at the old Whitworth and I can never remember which of our friends have met each other I’m afraid.

    Would love to see what you all come up with if pennies allow. Hope it goes well!


  2. Thanks Liz, I know of Sam, and saw him play with Chris Butler recently, but I don’t think we’ve met. Looking forward to it obviously!
