Verity Sharp

For her final show of the week, Verity Sharp puts a hand into her record bag and plays what comes out, in the name of improvisation. Plus a tribute to Feminist Improvising Group.

For her final show of the week, Verity puts a hand into her record bag and plays what comes out.

Improvisation is the name of the game tonight, with music from free and phenomenal performers The Borborygma Ensemble, Irreversible Entanglements, Caroline Kraabel and Makaya McCraven.

There's also time for a tribute to influential and short-lived outfit Feminist Improvising Group, founded forty years ago by vocalist Maggie Nicols and composer Lindsay Cooper.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
