Two bits of news about the upcoming Madwort Saxophone Quartet gig at Manchester Jazz Festival…
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.
We had a great time (medical emergencies aside), here are some photos from the day taken by David McLenachan:

And in fortuitous style, Live at LUME is also released today, which features a track from AKW (the trio of myself with no-input mixer artist Richard Knight & saxophonist Sam Andreae):
It’s taken me a little bit of time to get over all the excitement (and the beer), but LUME on Tour was bloody brilliant!
