It’s been a while since my last update and there’s plenty of news.
The Rad Orchestra, a band I’ve been involved in for years, is finally releasing an album.
We’re launching this eagerly awaited debut with an 11-day tour of Belgium, Germany and the UK.
The Rad Orchestra sing and play hypnotic tunes on guitar, ngoni, viola, violin, fiddle, bass and percussion. They take inspiration from time-honoured song writers, Blues & Soul, minimalism and global Folk.
We’ll be joined by our friends Frogbelly and Symphony for the entirety of the tour, so check us out and tell anyone you know in the vicinity!
