The music room is a small music club in East Suffolk, presenting an eclectic range of innovative artists, broadly in the folk and improv music traditions. The sessions are in the intimate, informal setting of our barn, ( not the studio) with a chance to socialise and share experiences of the music.
The first night is on Saturday 17th June, with Bird Radio, aka Mikey Kirkpatrick. Drinks from 7.00, music at 8.00.
Admission is £5 on the door, to support the musicians. We will provide the drinks, and some food (bread, cheese, salads).
“A mix of old testament preacher and Captain Beefheart. There’s a touch of Tom Waits and Nick Cave in there too…” (jazzman.com)
“Bird Radio is ‘future medieval’, as if J.G. Ballard had written The Wicker Man”. Steve Chandra Savale, Asian Dub Foundation
“Bird Radio is a flute-toting, bass drum-beating sensation… A must-see live act.” Rick Pearson, Evening Standard
Mikey’s set for the music room will be based on his album ‘Oh, Happy England’. Poems by Walter de la Mare are set to voice, piano, flutes, loops and Japanese taiko percussion. The work was developed and supported by a residency at Snape Maltings in 2014.
The rich and atmospheric poetry revolves around the inner and outer landscapes of time, space, memory, the seasons, nature, dreams, fear, loss and war.
We hope to see you on 17th June, please let us know if you want to attend by emailing here.
