The Orchestra Pit
Scaledown #90
(Friday the 28th June)

'tis June, 'tis the ninetieth Scaledown, and yet the decadence continues apace as we invitingly unfurl our sticky carpet once more to bring you the finest of entertainment...

Lorraine Bowen - crumbles! The terrific mistress of melody and domestic goddess is going to pop in and show us how to celebrate summer! Never mind the rain when there's rhubarb, beaches and balloons! We love her lots.

Eze Chimalio - the mysterious cosmos will be revealed in art of intrigue and breath. The trumpet brings to life other planets, inner realities. Experience yourself with universal notes drawn in the Scaledown air by your musical guide. *** Love IS Power ***

Raf and O - Raf Mantelli and Richard Smith are Raf and O, and you, people of Scaledown, are in for a sublime mix of live electronics, acoustic instruments and fragile, magnetic, strange lullabies married to a pop spirit.

Charles Hayward - to simply run off a roll call of bands that Charles has played with would just seem a little bit crass, so we shan't, oh is Scaledown Now that interests us, and we are delighted to be hosting the immense talent that is Mr Hayward and the musical treat he shall serve up.

Keith John Adams + Matt Armstrong - The excellent Mr Adams will bring his fine array of witty ditties to scaledown on double bass by Matt Armstrong (of instrumental combo The Windsors). You lucky lucky people!

Jo Thomas - Jo Thomas is an artist of the ambient electronic variety who has just released a new album entitled Mermaids. 'A richly detailed sound world in which the listener can explore without feeling the over bearing structure of impressions or interpretation' (The Wire) 2012

The Orchestra Pit clicks its heels, and dances merrily into the sunshiney warmth of your continued support....mwahhhhhh!
