Toys’n’stuff

General havoc at the moment but not in an entirely unpleasant way…

This weekend I’ll be playing a couple of Melbourne Fringe Festival show with Mooshim, struggling valiantly to pretend I still have some ability on keyboard percussion after years of neglect. It should be fun in an epic minimalist jazz-ish kind of way.

And then heading up to Brisbane for the Festival of Toy Music on 5 October where I’ll be developing a performance for 25 tin whistles as well as seeing how many party horns can be realistically inserted into a set of uilleann pipes (I really hope the ghost of Willie Clancy is looking elsewhere) with Clocked Out Duo.  I’ll also be deeply honoured to be sharing the stage with the magnificent Margaret Leng Tan. It would be great to see some of my Brisbane friends (and any of my really dedicated Melbourne friends).

Somewhere in there I’ll also be working on and recording some tunes for the upcoming  BROUS album…

More coming soon, including International Uilleann Piping Day (yes, you heard right) on the 19th of October. Hurrah!
