Madwort Saxophone Quartet @ MJF 2015 (updated)

Firstly, it’s apparently sold out, so if you don’t already have a ticket, you’re too late!

Secondly, in very sad news, Chris Williams has fractured a bone in his hand in a freak accident, so the amazing Dee Byrne will be standing in for him on alto saxophone.

UPDATE:

We had a great time (medical emergencies aside), here are some photos from the day taken by David McLenachan:
