The past couple of Freedom Principle gigs in October have probably been two of my favourite ones ever… At the beginning of the month we had three of the country’s leading improvising musicians in Corey Mwamba and Dave Kane (top picture) alongside Chris Sharkey, and then continuing with the series of ‘Anton’s favourite guitarists’ we then had an incredible double bill of Mike Walker and Stuart McCallum (bottom picture) a couple of weeks later.
Next month promises to continue the awesomeness of the gigs – first up on November 6th we have a new project from Beats & Pieces saxophonist Ben Watte, combining elements of jazz with dubstep and other electronic music, alongside a new trio from guitarist Dan Brew. Then on November 20th we have Efpi co-founder Sam Andreae who brings his band Silence Blossoms all the way from Sweden to play their second ever UK show and launch their brand new collection of live recordings available on Efpi; alongside Freedom Principle favourite Alice Zawadzki, here stripped down in a duo with the returning Stuart McCallum.
Apologies to anyone who was hoping to see Roller Trio on November 6th – unfortunately due to other commitments thrust upon them by their recent Mercury nomination they are now unable to perform, but send their apologies… Thanks though to Dan and his trio for stepping in at short notice!
