Fizzle this week….

Hi there,

Mike Hurley sent the regular Fizzle announcement. This one sounds good, and if you’re still not convinced, the Lamp Tavern does really good beer!

Fizzle at The Lamp Tavern

Tuesday 5th March, 2013, 8:30pm

Daniel Thompson (guitar) Neil Metcalfe (flute) Guillaume Viltard (double bass)
This incredible acoustic free improvising trio play at Fizzle as part of a tour to launch their new cd entitled ‘Garden of Water and Light’.

Thompson and Viltard are relatively new to the scene but have established a strong reputation. Metcalfe is nothing short of a master, and is considered by many to be one of the greatest musicians of our time.

“As so often with trios that lack drums, their absence seems like a release, and imbues the music with a refreshing lightness. Viltard’s bass underpins the music, meaning it is less active than the flute and guitar which play together more. Metcalfe’s flute is the dominant voice of the trio, soloing almost continuously with great fluency and a seemingly endless supply of melodic phrases and fragments. In his hands, the flute achieves the freedom of birdsong, creating music that flows.”
From a review of ‘Garden of Water and Light’ by John Eyles 2013.
