20th March DOUBLE BILL : Like People + Seb Pipe's Life Experience
This coming Tuesday we present an incredible Double Bill of music at The Amersham Arms. If you have not been down before why not enhance your Life Experience, and come and say hello; the folk that have checked us out before know that we Like People. The music happens in the back room of the pub, and it's just a fiver to get in and even cheaper (3 quid) if you make it down before 8:30. (Ridiculousbargain),see you there. Here's a bit about the bands playing this week...
Like People bring a swirling freshness and ambience to contemporary folk and alternative song. Influenced by Hanne Hukkelberg, Little Dragon and Sidsel Endressen. Featuring Emilia Martenssen (vocals), Rory Simmons (tpt & electronics), Jon Harvey (bass), John Blease (drums).
Seb Pipe’s Life Experience; Rigorous structural explorations balanced with an engaging affection for traditional song-themes, Latin-jazz vivacity, East European folk-forms and bursts of straight-ahead jazz swing.
"The leader's serpentine melodic fluency, improv resoursefulness and controlled freedom with pitch all confirm that the early accolades he has received were well deserved" - John Fordham (The Guardian)
"I'm impressed... this is good stuff... it's deep" -Jack Massarik (BBC Radio 3, Jazz Line-Up)
