The Ciderhouse Rebellion @ Roots Music Club, Doncaster
January 14 @ 8:00 pm£10
Profound and eloquent, epic, haunting and dramatic, The Ciderhouse Rebellion sees master musicians Adam Summerhayes and Murray Grainger’s combine to produce improvised subtly woven tapestries of sound.
The pair specialise in creating music in the moment, sometimes based around trad. tunes, particularly from the North East, and also around their own compositions – often springing from a single note, a key, a time signature and an emotion. It’s this unusually improvisatory focus that is uniquely magical. A quest to create music in the moment, with no conscious thought between conception and playing, searching for unexpected magic and the possibility to create a deeper and perhaps more revealing narrative.
