About this event

PROVINCIALS

“A very dark, ethereal alt-classical jazz soundscape. Poetic, brooding, resonant and menacing…an edge of Ennio Morricone” - Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

"Arty, open-ended, diatonic, spacious, very reverberant… a sort of wistful chamber-improv-Anglorum." Independent on Sunday

“Dripping atmosphere like an abandoned Victorian railway tunnel…Polly Perry’s voice is a slow-moving river through a mutable landscape of guitar arpeggios and walls of echoed atonal sound.”R2 Magazine

RICK FOOT

Double bassist and writer of sardonic songs, Rick's background is in jazz and abstract improvisation, and much of his current work is with acoustic singer/songwriters, including touring with the Ruth Theodore Band. He has recorded and performed with many people across a range of genres, from folk musicians Nancy Kerr and James Fagan to saxophonists Dick Heckstall-Smith and Evan Parker.

As a songwriter he has released an acclaimed album - Rain Machine ("a collection of warmly cynical songs about the insanities of modern life) and an EP - Songs of Idiocy & Expedience, which he performs solo with voice, bass and loop device. His 39-second miniature A Message to the Future was a finalist in the 2018 International Songwriting Competition.

"Breathtaking... a distinctive voice" - BBC

"Splendid and off-the-wall" - Festivals For All

"Conjures an impressive array of sound effects without any electronic trickery" - City Life

"A freak" - Jersey Evening Post
