About the event

Musician run, and curated by guitarist John Russell, the event has over fifty musicians taking part from the UK, Germany, Italy, Sweden and Japan.

A varied programme of both electric and acoustic music that should have something for all tastes, there will also be the chance to find new delights amongst the twenty sets happening throughout the day.

Gina Southgate will be the official festival artist and there will also be opportunities to purchase CDs and other merchandise.

John Russell says, ‘ I have thought about doing something like this for a number of years. In fact since the Freedom of the City festival folded. Also, having moved to Walthamstow a few years ago and liking the forward looking nature of the place I thought it would be good to do something like this here. Free improvisation is unique in that the audience and the musicians discover the music at the same time and this makes for a special bond. Hence the title ‘Discovery’. I would also say it is going to be a lot of fun!!’
