Fancy a Saturday night in? Joe Kassman-Tod’s radio show Disorder at the Border tomorrow Saturday 17th at 8pm n Resonance 104.4FM has some interesting stuff, and in particular a preview of the Partager Paris-London-New York series at Kings Place. Joe will be interviewing Patsy Craig of “t Wo” Productions who’s running the festival.
One of the artists performing at the festival is pianist and composer Andy Emler.
Joe has been travelling abroad (highly tenuous link to picture above!). He went off to Royaumont Abbey in France to record his church organ project. Emler performs as soloist and in duet and trio formats. I note the name of Mederic Collignon on cornet and bugle, whose last album has been getting rave reviews in France.
