Very excited to have the wonderful Charles Hayward and John Cavanagh here in Cheltenham on the same night.
Charles Hayward (begin anywhere): known primarily as a drummer, songwriter and improviser, a new project centred around songs performed at the piano, a sequence of betrayal, paranoia, subterfuge, opening out into resistance, hope and humanity, interweaved with sound events, drums, spoken word, performance. Stark, minimal arrangements; an unexpected departure.
