Mopomoso Live Concert Series

Run entirely by volunteers, Mopomoso has as its aims and objectives the promoting of the understanding and enjoyment of freely improvised music in all its forms. We do this in a number of ways and we also play host to the UK’s longest running concert series dedicated to the music. 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.

Caroline Kraabel (sax), Neil Metcalfe (flute) duo

The first pairing of the afternoon sees two major players from the London scene who have that rare ability to mix melodic invention with both playfulness and a deep sense of soul.

Lullula – Armorel Weston (voice), Kay Grant (voice), Jim Dvorak (trumpet), Otto Willberg (bass/voice) quartet

The name is taken from the woodlark Lullula, known for its heavenly song, and this group use free improvisation to create a joyous and delightful sound, never complacent and full of surprises.

John Russell (guitar) , Alex Ward (clarinet) duo

For the last set we have renowned guitarist / improviser John Russell with the ever surprising Alex Ward. They will be deciding on the day what instruments to use so it could be a mix of acoustic and electric guitars with Alex’s clarinet somewhere in there as well. It might be all acoustic or electric. Whatever the instrumentation it will be a lot of fun!
