Music and Myth Festival ’17, Thailand – the dim lit subterranea of the ancient mind

A hall painted with shifting light, a hundred instruments new and strange – pulsing the life-beat of these ancient lands, with me astonished and inspired...

Thai Tour '14 - Hatti's story

Thai Tour ’14 – Hatti’s story

THAIS BELIEVE THAT FREEING A LIFE BRINGS BENEFIT AND BLESSING. This one ancient and arcane belief holds within it the heart of mercy, the thing so obviously missing in our grab-it-all society. The reality is more mundane and questionable – on the banks of the river, plastic buckets hold fish, eels and turtles, caught to...

Booklaunch/ Exhibition/ Gig for ‘Postcards from the Road’ at 86’d Gallery

“I pray thee, good Mercutio, let’s retire: For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring.” A WONDERFUL time at 86’d GALLERY, stuck in a high window looking over the late-lit Severn, each side surrounded by an engine assault of high day bikers, cruising the strip. Through the open window, voiles carving in the...

Atlantic Drifter in Hong Kong – gigs – Peel Fresco

  PEEL STREET FRESCO, CENTRAL, HONG KONG.Walking from the Soho levels down, threading between dark wooden restaurants, Peel street begins with the reek of incense, throat-scratchingly intense. The always burning smoke in a small alcove, red tiled, functional, with an indecipherable inscription hidden in a lockable niche. PEEL STREET FRESCO, CENTRAL, HONG KONG. Just down...

Atlantic Drifter in Hong Kong – gigs – Bookworm Café

The Bookworm Café is nestled in a quiet corner of a quiet little town on a quiet island.
