CHRIS MONTAGUE is widely recognised for his skills as a guitarist and composer. As a founder member of Troyka he has garnered a reputation for his distinctive approach to the guitar and has gained much acclaim for his contribution to many contemporary recordings.
Chris’ new trio ‘Warmer than Blood’ with Kit Downes (ECM) on piano and acclaimed bassist Ruth Goller on bass released its debut album in May 2020 with Whirlwind recordings, and will be touring this material. For this event, Chris will be performing a rare set of solo guitar.
Di-Cysgodion, a new group led by Welsh bass player/composer HUW V WILLIAMS. The line up consists of Mike De Souza and Billy Marrows both on electric guitar, Jay Davis on drums and Huw V Williams completing the line up on electric bass. Williams goes back to his rock roots with this instrumentation to explore the sonic pallet from the view of a jazz improvisor/composer.
Having previously led projects with no harmony instruments, Huw decided to have a group which deals with harmony head on, exploring dense harmonic voicings paired with infectious rhythms and live stereo guitars. This music comes from a huge pool of influences, including Deerhoof, Ravel, Thelonious Monk, Super Furry Animals, Ornette Coleman, Hermeto and everything inbetween. A musical spectacle not to be missed.
