23rd @ Clock House – Kwartet

An evening of musical conversations inspired by birdsong recordings and completed with Kwartet’s songbook. With Tony Woods, Tim Whitehead, Dave Jones and Gary Wilcox.

Tony Woods and Tim Whitehead recorded “Seventh Daze” back in 2012 , “unpretentiously joyous music making” (John Fordham-The Guardian) with Kwartet completed by double bass and drums, which in this line-up will feature fellow WayOutWesters Dave Jones and Gary Wilcox. Detailed musical conversations is the hallmark of this leadership duo, and this gig will take its inspiration from blackbird recordings , where duos, trios and finally Kwartet will swop Ornithological licks, culminating in a fresh ‘Bird’ song take on the “Seventh Daze ” album tracks.
