This Friday I’m playing down in Brighton with Sunday Driver in aid of the Refugee radio orchestra.
Here are the details – if you’re in the area, it would be lovely to see you. I think we’re on at 9pm, but turn up earlier just in case!
Steampunk pioneers play in aid of Refugee Radio
Live @ Jam, 9-12 Middle Street, Brighton, BN1 1AL
Friday 21st August 7PM £6
“Like an Indian Kate Bush from some mad alternative reality where the Victorians had access to spaceships, Sunday Driver are here to put the steam into Steampunk.
With sitars and guitars, clarinets, tablas and god knows what else, this Cambridge six-piece mash up the East and the West, the past, present and future into a kind of science fiction folk music.
Sunday Driver are playing an exclusive show at Jam to raise funds for the Refugee Radio Orchestra, with support from global musicians.
Refugee Radio are a local community arts group working with refugees and asylum seekers. In the face of hostile anti-immigration media stories, Refugee Radio aim to bring people back together.
Paolo Boldrini, a Trustee of Refugee Radio says ‘Sunday Driver are amazing. This gig is going to be a brilliant way to raise awareness of our project and help overcome the barriers between people in our city.'”
It’s going to be great 🙂
