So on Friday evening my friend Shelly and I put on a new music night at We Are Birmingham which was cool. We were a bit rushed for time in preparation for it but the musicians pulled it all off after an intensive day of rehearsals! The idea was to play music by emerging composers – people who have not made it into the ‘big-time’ quite yet – people like myself! It’s really hard to get performance opportunities for instrumental composers so it was good to give it a go.
It was also nice to meet Kurly Mcgeachie – a performance poet from Birmingham. I liked his stuff – a real positive vibe to it!
Quite a diverse audience attended – not just your usual contemporary music lovers. There were certainly some interesting characters there…
But it seemed to go down well and was pretty well attended! Long may it continue. I’ll post some audio/video up here when I get some.
