New LUME season starting in May

LUME is back at Hundred Years Gallery on 20th May for a brand new season! Triple bills always with one solo set, these gigs allow Cath and I to invite our favourite artists into this creative, dynamic space. On 20th May I’ll be doing a solo set with electronics. My solo project has become a really important part of my development as an artist and I’m discovering that each time I get to perform solo, I’m increasing my ability to focus and let go into the moment. Hugely rewarding and quite scary! On 17th June I’m excited to play a duo with the super talented Lara Jones – we’ll be having a creative dialogue using our saxophones and electronics. For the final gig of this season on 15th July, my long-time collaborator Rebecca Nash and I will be exploring our original music in the duo format (for the first time!) Also really looking forward to hearing all the other sets.

Music starts at 8pm, doors 7.30pm. £10 entry. See you there!

Gigs with Rebecca Nash in March

I really enjoyed playing a couple of gigs with Rebecca Nash and her new project: Redefining Element 78. Her new album will be released on Whirlwind Recordings this November. We played at Jazz Steps in Nottingham on 10th March and at Jazz North East’s Sound of Science Festival in Newcastle on 17th March. Here’s a video from our performance at Sound of Science Festival.
