Event description
Will Lawton and the Alchemists - 'intricate riffs hung on fluid, free-flowing musical structures' Hazir - A Middle Eastern Spectacular!

About this event

Will Lawton and The Alchemists

The raw songs crafted by singer-songwriter Will Lawton are transformed into a myriad of colours by the Alchemists. This eclectic mix of musicians blend jazz, folk, drum and bass and a smattering of indie to deliver a powerful, soulful and unique live experience. The band have recently released two albums, ‘Fossils of the Mind’ and ‘Abbey House Session’.

“There is something of the jazz approach at the core of the sound of Will Lawton and the Alchemists - interesting timings and intricate riffs hung on fluid, free-flowing musical structures - but there richly textured and layer music contains much more besides. Indie melodics, rock weight and progressive meanderings all add poise and power. They could be your best new find of the year” - Swindon Shuffle 2019

This band features Will Lawton (piano and vocals), Weasel Howlett (drums), Buddy Fonzarelli (upright bass), Ami Kaelyn (guitar and vocals) and Harki Popli (tabla).

The Hazir Ensemble

Hazir; Turkish/Urdu = ‘Ready, Willing, Available’

Hazir play their own intoxicating, high-energy, shimmy-inspiring interpretations of popular, folk and classical melodies, songs and rhythms from across the Middle East, Turkey and beyond. Our production is Chalguh Chengi, a family friendly live music and dance show, introducing musical instruments, songs and dancing of Turkey, Balkans and Middle East.

Hazir are:

Lulu Austin (Violin/Percussion)

Elvin Herrick (Darbuka/Riq/Frame drums)

Simon Leach (Oud/Saz/Percussion/Zurna)

Jo Levine (Quarter Tone Accordion/Piano/Percussion)

Tom Parry (Clarinet/Saxophone/Duduk/Percussion)

Sevilay Turlington (Voice/Percussion)

‘So why do we play this particular music? Perhaps there is something of the various migrations of our ancestors deep in the D.N.A, or maybe it’s simply because we love it….’ And as for when the dancers join us, well that’s when the party really takes off! We will be joined by dancer Anna Kemper at Schtumm....
