Ian McGowan (trumpet) Hannah Marshall (cello) Marcio Mattos (bass) trio

Three highly respected players generating a collective sensibility built on years of experience. The generosity of spirit and genuine love for sharing the mechanics of music making shine through. Real!

John Rangecroft (clarinet) solo

A rare chance to hear John play solo and also on clarinet, rather than the saxophone Mopomoso regulars will be more familiar with. John’s material, while based in the melodic, offers an intriguing glimpse into a different narrative.

Phil Minton (voice) John Russell (guitar) duo

Not much to say about these two! One Youtube video, recorded at a Mopomoso session at the Vortex went viral on a Thai tourist site with over 370,000 and over 3,500 shares. Vocal chords meet guitar strings in an engaging immediacy we guarantee you won’t have heard before!

Emil Karlsen (drums) solo

Alan Tomlinson (trombone), Dave Tucker (guitar), Phil Marks (drums) trio

Three sets from the world of free improvisation to enlighten and inspire.

Matt Hutchinson (piano), Sue Lynch (sax), Hutch Demouilpied (trumpet) trio

Another chance to catch the longstanding duo of Sue Lynch – sax/flute and Hutch Demouilpied – trumpet , augmented on this occasion by keyboard player Matt Hutchinson on piano. He brings a further dynamic and perhaps a certain ‘wildcard’ element to their excellent and sometimes uncanny musical rapport.

Emil Karlsen (drums) solo

Emil Karlsen’s electro-acoustic solo project is inspired by his philosophy of using the drum kit as a solo instrument. Being born and raised in a small village deep in the Norwegian forest has given him the opportunity to be inspired and respect the raw force of nature, and work organically with the drum kit. A root in the organic and acoustic, but also working with a blend of acoustic and electronics has given him an opportunity to explore textures, rhythm and loops to create a personal world of musical expression. This project is a portrait of many years thinking compositionally and texturally about the art of drumming.

Alan Tomlinson (trombone), Dave Tucker (guitar), Phil Marks (drums) trio

Much loved trio led by trombonist Tomlinson bring a joyful sense of anarchic play and fine musicianship in a return visit to the series. Expect the unexpected when you least expect it. Engaging and fun.
