Hello everyone . . . BUTLEY PRIORY SESSIONS are resuming!
We open our Summer season with the truly beautiful Cello and Piano collaboration that is the CEEYS brothers. Anyone who came to Poppy Ackroyd's concert here last summer will remember them opening for her; it was a beautiful summer evening, the garden doors were open, the evening birdsong joined in, as we were all swept away by the music. I cant wait to hear a repeat! Internationally acclaimed artists, they are coming to play for us all the way from Potsdam in Germany and will be giving us a taste of their wondrous new album. Atmospheric, contemplative music that I find deeply moving. "An extraordinary piece of work" Maryanne Hobbs on Waende their first album.
With my soundscape colleague Matthew, as Pianofield, I have the honour of playing a short warm up set before the main performance. I'm so looking forward to it - we are celebrating having just finished the recordings for our new album 'Sustain' - progress indeed!
