Really happy to have been asked to be part of this project. Darwish is a very inspired musician and composer from London, he’s also alright to hang out with! I had a great time composing, arranging and playing all the sax parts on his album ‘Reclamation’ . We’re doing some gigs around the UK over the next few months. You can find details on my gigs page or you visit his FB.
Summer is shaping up to be very exciting so far. We’ll be heading to The Black Mountains to play at Fire In The Mountain on June 2nd then on the way back down south we’ll be playing for the lovely people at The Hermon Chapel in Oswestry. On June 15th we’ll be heading over to Trondheim in Norway to play two gigs. June 15th at Antikvariatet, we’ll then head 80 or so Kilometres north to play the Slabberaset festival in Steinkjer on June 16th.
We’ve got some great gigs coming up around the UK over the next couple of months. On October 28th we’ll be at The Louis Marchesi in Norwich (tickets available here).
