It’s been a busy old time here at Madwort HQ, recent exciting activities have included:
Madwort’s Menagerie at St Pauls Sessions
This gig was amazing, the band played the **** out of my tunes, and a really appreciative audience.

For the first time in many years, I cracked out a big band arrangement for Paulo Duarte’s Overground Collective which we played at the Others in April. I’d forgotten quite what it’s like standing in front of such a massive powerhouse of musicians all going for it & such a privilege to have musicians of such calibre playing my music… Might have to do some more of it…
New Dark Art
We also did another two gigs – Derby & London – playing Corey Mwamba’s New Dark Art with the Eb Sax Quartet (myself & Chris Williams on alto sax, Cath Roberts & Colin Webster on bari sax). The gigs were a bit different but equally great!
