new, original and improvised music in Cambridge
Our Autumn 2022 programme continues...
Skylla + Margrit
Saturday 29th October
Weaving together vocal layers around chiming bass chords, harmonics and different tuning systems, Skylla explores the bewitching, intimate, other worldly songs of celebrated bass player and composer Ruth Goller.
Ruth Goller ~ bass guitar and voice,
Lauren Kinsella ~ voice,
Alice Grant ~ voice
Margrit Hasler opens the evening with a solo set for viola with pedals, transforming a wide range of pieces by some of her favourite musicians, including Bill Frisell and Maurice Ravel, alongside a fresh approach to tunes from the bluegrass tradition.
Saturday 3rd December
