October Concerts: Mike Westbrook / Keith TippetOctober 4th, 2018
SO… Mike Westbrook’s music changed my way of hearing music when I was a student at Leeds College of Music, and Keith Tippett is the reason I play the piano the way I do. And, if that weren’t enough, I am appearing under their auspices within one week of each other. First up:
I’d been in correspondence with Mike over the last few months re working together on something, then one day asked if I would step in for him on this concert, which happens to be on my birthday. How could I refuse? Not only that, but I also get to appear in the distinguished company of musicians Kate Westbrook, Phil Minton, Christ Biscoe, Steve Berry, and Billy Thompson. Plus a full choir…
Having played a good few times in Bristol before our debut at last year’s London Jazz Festival, we are looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, again, this time in the beautiful setting of St. Bartholomew’s church in Marsden. This will be Keith’s first appearance for a good while, so come along to this one; it’s going to be rather special. With a series of concerts planned for Spring 2019, stay tuned for more news and announcements.
See you at one/other/both of these concerts x
