Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we have a three-day residency with the great Han Bennink. In the fields of experimental and outsider music, the word “legendary” can be applied far too liberally, but for Han Bennink no other word will do. Combining equal parts virtuosity and anarchic irreverence, Bennink has never rested on his laurels, and this should be an enthralling and thrillingly unpredictable three days. To kick off proceedings, we’ve also added a rare Q&A session with Han on the first night of the residency on Thursday, hosted by great drummer and OTO favourite, Steve Noble.
To celebrate Han’s residency we also thought we’d drop two fantastic Incus recordings in the digital shop – Derek Bailey & Han Bennink’s Han, and another Bailey duet with Brazilian percussionist Cyro Batista, Cyro.
New shows announced this week include a two-day residency with captivating songwriter, Josephine Foster, and a solo show with sensational drummer and musical polyglot, Greg Fox.
