Some gigs updated for Spring 2013 - and working on a new commission to be performed in September, more to follow on that!
Finally after a hectic summer (the most travelling I’ve ever done) I’ve updated the gigs list! Breach will be touring the UK in October and November to coincide with the release of the new album, to be called Borders.
I must confess something - I have Tour-ettes. That is, I have a lot of musical trips coming up, firstly jumping into the piano chair of Stu Brown’s Raymond Scott Project for some England gigs in April, followed immediately by an 8-date tour of Scotland with Phil Bancroft. And of course looking forward to the biggest trip of all with Breach we’re travelling across to the USA and Canada in June to play at Rochester Jazz Festival, Toronto, and Vancouver jazz festival. On our return we’ll be recording a new album. Also this summer I’m delighted to be recording and touring with the great Aidan O’Rourke’s band including a gig at the Olympics.
Another Scottish Jazz Award
Thankyou to all who voted for the “Hospitalfield Suite” in the Scottish Jazz Awards - we won! Big thanks to Alan Barnes, Phil O’Malley, Ed Kelly and Stuart Brown for bringing the music to life but most of all to Alan Steadman of Jazz at Hospitalfield who came up with the idea. My plan is to record the music next year, watch this space.
