There is an opening on the 19 th March from 2pm to 5pm. All very welcome.

I have a very interesting gig coming up at Dubrek in February.

Here is all you need to know.


DUBREK, Derby, 67, Bridge Street DE1 3LB

Saturday February 18th


Gill Whiteley – piano, viola, hurdy-gurdy, voice
Geoff Bright – bass, tenor, and soprano saxophones, voice
Walt Shaw – percussion, electronics , voice
Lyn Hodnett – voice, cello, trumpet, objects

“Free improv collective YOWL cook sonic collisions across an accelerating event-space from whispered zero right through to the scream of libidinal wrench.

Expect a weird conjunct of wind, voices, strings, percussion and full-on animal bodies pushing towards a maximal threshold of intensity.”

Geoff, Gill, Lyn and Walt have worked together in different collaborations in duos, trios, & larger groups for many years, but this particular quartet is new and is being brought to Derby from Sheffield, Wales and Burton-on-Trent

There will also be an exciting set from William McGiven

Will is a free form DJ on SoulandJazz.com
His sets always surprise, shock, amaze and innovate

£5 on the door – Open 7-30pm
