Verity Sharp travels to Cambridge for this month's experimental music showcase featuring music from C Joynes, Pete Um and Rachel Watkins.
Verity Sharp travels to the Blue Moon venue in Cambridge for this month's experimental music showcase. Guitarist C Joynes has been described as "an inheritor to Davy Graham" and his work incorporates a wide range of styles from North and West African music to English folk and contemporary classical. Pete Um is a maverick "tape-poet", a fixture in the Cambridge experimental scene whose unusual miniatures combine voice and electronic sounds from MiniDisc player. Finally we have ghostly atmospherics from the violin and voice of Rachel Watkins, founder member of psych folk group Fuzzy Lights.
