We’re pleased to announce that Efpi’s own Anton Hunter is taking part in a residency all this week at the Band On The Wall, led by award-winning folk band The Unthanks. The aim of the week is to create an evening’s worth of music by collaborating with the band and with the other 11 musicians selected to take part. The fruit of their labours will be on Friday 10th from 7:30pm.
You can keep up to date with what Anton thinks at his website. And up to date with what everyone else thinks as well at this website (content will be uploaded throughout the week, nothing on there at time of posting).
For even more links to Efpi; Clive Hunte, who is playing bass all week, actually filmed some of the Beats & Pieces Big Band live DVD too. So there.
