Mike Walker's Ropes Project - RNCM, October 12th
Guitarist Mike Walker is getting ready to perform his newest work, Ropes, for only the second time ever, at the RNCM in Manchester on October 12th.
This epic piece had its première as part of the 2008 Manchester Jazz Festival. This, the work’s second ever live performance, will feature Mike’s internationally-renowned jazz quintet with the 22-piece Psappha Strings who recorded the work for CD earlier this year.
As well as the Psappha Strings, Mike will be joined by Iain Dixon, Gwilym Simcock, Steve Rodby and Adam Nussbaum.
The gig is part of the new Psappha concert season and two other works will be performed that evening; Steve Reich's Triple Quartet and Gavin Bryar's Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet.
Tickets are on sale now priced at £20/17.50 (a limited number of early bird tickets are also available.) More information and bookings can be found on the RNCM website.
