Mopomoso Live Concert Series
Run entirely by volunteers, Mopomoso plays host to the UK’s longest running concert series dedicated to free improvisation. Our next concerts are listed below. Do come and check the music out. Ideally free improvisation is a music to be enjoyed live. If you can’t make it there are plenty of videos from previous performances in our Past Concerts section. Just click on a date to bring them up. Have fun and thanks for dropping by.
Mopomoso’s 25th anniversary afternoon sessions continue with three very different sets from the wonderful world of free improvisation.
John Rangecroft (sax) / Dave Tucker (guitar) / Marcio Mattos (bass) / Mark Sanders (drums) quartet
Highly respected reedsman Rangecroft, here on tenor saxophone, leading his own quartet which promises melodic and rhythmic invention of a high calibre. With three of the UK’s finest providing a propulsive energy, a great way to open proceedings.
Matilda Rolfsson (perc) / Hannah Marshall (cello) / Julie Kjaer (sax) trio
Outstanding Danish saxophonist, British cellist and Norwegian percussionist join forces in an ever changing trialogue full of ideas and invention, brimming with energy and a genuine sense of fun. Delightful!
Henry Lowther (trumpet) / John Russell (guitar) duo
The last set of the Mopomoso Red Rose series was played by this long standing partnership. A poised and very open duo who are unaverse to risk taking while sharing a mutual respect and understanding for each other’s music. Their regular trio with violinist Satoko Fukuda plays later in the year so this is a rare chance to catch these two fine musicians in a duo.
