Evan Parker & Sten Sandell

How could you ever tire of hearing Evan Parker perform?  When I arrived in Stirling from a six year sojourn in the town of London I was pleasantly surprised to find that Evan was performing solo at a new festival of experimental music called Le Weekend. I had never thought that when moving to Stirling this would happen. From hearing him perform from the pulpit in a Nickesdorf church to performing as part of his twelve piece band at Huddersfield this year or in the basement of a rather beautiful Singapore restaurant at one of John Steven’s beguiling evenings, Evan’s commitment and vision for his music never wanes. Evan returns to Glasgow to perform with the wonderful pianist and organ player from Sweden Sten Sandell as part of a collaborative commission for his 70th birthday last year with Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival exploring a series of improvisations for church organ and saxophone.
