The Orchestra Pit

As October brings with it rain and bluster, well buster, let's see what we can muster for you lovely Scaledown people with your big coats and scarves and bobbledy hats:

Pete Evans - Another from the 'welcome return' department, Mr Evans charmed you all with his acerbic wit and nifty picking in May this year. May he play again? He may.

Me and Deboe -Double acoustic guitar assault, Mercy Elise and Sarah Deboe play with ferocity and urgent rhythm. Come here. Come hear.

Matthew Lee Knowles - The composer, artist and experimentalist decontextualises Jude's collection of poetry 'For the Messengers'. Tonight, friends, we are going to join his audio spectacle as avant-garde participant artists, but in a comfy way.

Krillit - Krillit is a coming together of Alison Blunt (UK) and Juun (AT), hailing from diverse backgrounds and creating a musical interchange drawing on the freedom offered by improvisation via violin, 'pianoguts', zither and hammered dulcimer. The listener is invited to float in a microcosmos, the energy of which oscillates between fragile and finely chiselled sounds.

Miss Roberts And The Rude Mechanicals - The mysterious and ethereal Miss Roberts along with her Rude Mechanicals is a whirling dervish of strange songs, sounds and looks...exploring many a musical dark nook and mysterious cranny.

Nigel Burch - what's that you say? bring back the Burch. why of course, dangling his ditties before your very eyes the master of bile returns to tell you 'orrible lot a few home truths (he's a teddy bear really).

Jude Cowan - what news? top musical analysis of current events courtesy of our Jude.

So hotfoot it to the King & Queen public house, 1 Foley Street @ 7.15 on the evening of Friday the 26th of October for this splendid hot toddy of musical wonderment we have prepared for you.

No shillings shall be taken at the door, but please do keep some coinage spare for when we pass around the hat for you to show your financial appreciation of the artists...

Scaledown doffs its cap and feigns a small curtsey in appreciation of your continued custom.
