SAT MAY 9TH – GREG FOAT + ADAM CONEY
Doors 7pm. Performance starts 8pm
Unique coming together of two prolific and striking musicians who’s work has been championed by Cerys Matthews (BBC 6 Music) and Wire Magazine respectively. Meditative minimalist composed inflections, passages of improvised folk/jazz tinged soundscapes coexisting in a realm of deep listening instrumental music for synthesiser, keys & guitar.
‘Greg Foat takes jazz to places where genres cease to matter and the music soars for the sake of it’ – Ian Rankin (Author)
‘Coney takes the most extraordinary journey through beautiful and also unsettling and unfamiliar soundscapes’ – Elizabeth Alker / BBC Radio 3
