Ross Lambert Northern Irish (and London-based) guitarist and ‘magnetic and vibrating sources’ player Ross Lambert, has in his own words, the following fundamental and simultaneous approaches to live performance: to play as though it was both the first time and also the last; and to able to differentiate between what is good and worth conserving and what is not. Ross has been involved in, initiated and been a connector between a very wide variety of improvisatory music since his first exposure and (immediate) commitment to it, in Sheffield via Derek Bailey during themid-1980s. Although under-recorded (he claims ‘by choice’), Ross has worked with a huge number of musicians from around the world, including Tetuzi Akiyama, Ami Yoshida, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Paul Hession, Rhodri Davies, John Butcher and Evan Parker, as well as his close friends Eddie Prevost, Seymour Wright, and Sebastian Lexer. He recently released Magnit- Iz – Dat, a recording of improvised & field- recording pieces exploring themes of construction, place and community. ‘…Ross shares his tender musings and sometimes menacing meanderings without guile, anticipation or undue care. But with precision.’ Eddie Prevost
SYLVIA HALLETT   is a multi-instrumentalist and composer moving between violin, Norwegian Hardanger fiddle, saw, accordion, electronics, bowed bicycle wheel and other found objects. She has played in international festivals since the late 1970s, working with several well-known and respected musicians, including David Toop, the late Lol Coxhill, Alasdair Roberts, Evan Parker, and the groups Accordions Go Crazy, LaXula, British Summer Time Ends, Heliocentrics, Arc,The London Improvisers Orchestra, and the London Hardingfelelag. She is highly regarded for her work with dance and theatre companies and BBC radio commissions. As well as numerous CDs with others, Sylvia has released three solo CDs, two on the MASH label, comprising songs, improvisations, and sounds from found objects. www.sylviahallett.co.uk 
Carolyn Hume & Paul May Carolyn Hume / piano, keyboards Paul May / drums Hume and May create dreamy, indefinite improvisations, sometimes menacing and dark, with minimalist romanticism and twitching jungle rhythms, cinematic strings and vaporous trajectories of melancholy. In almost twenty years as a duo they’ve released five albums together. ” …hypnotic and enchanting” ALL ABOUT JAZZ ‘Hume’s palette is notably wide, moving from a flush of watery tones to delicate piano parts’ DAVID KEENAN “THE WIRE”
DAM-SLO is made up of production powerhouse Ben Hauke and multi- instrumentalist Wilf Petherbridge . Ranging from part-buried vocals and trumpet to prepared vinyl, loops & live drums, Dam Slo are an exceptionally tight, original duo, containing the perfect mix of recklessness, precision and aggression.  ” …eclectic sample-based experimentation with sounds which seem heavily influenced by jazz, broken beats, hip-hop and house.” KOFI YEBOAH, INSPIRED SOUND
THOMAS TRUAX Merging a fevered imagination and solid songwriting with a mad scientist's brain for weird gadgets, American singer Thomas Truax is a true one-off. His evolving "band" of self-made sound sculptures include a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called 'Mother Superior' and a souped up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', but he never leaves his trusty guitar out of the equation too long. Thomas crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar. His nine studio LPs include highly-rated covers album 'Songs From The Films Of David Lynch'. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, The Dresden Dolls, Bob Log III and the late author Terry Pratchett. "When he performs, it is a spectacle - the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal." -The Guardian "Enthralling, mind-blowingly original and totally bonkers... a creative circus of the wonderfully surreal." - Brighton Noise www.thomastruax.com
RITA BRAGA, playing for the first time in Birmingham, is a Portuguese songstress who simultaneously summons the ghosts of synth pioneers such as Delia Derbyshire and Bruce Haack as well as that of eccentric performers like Vivian Stanshall and Carmen Miranda. Rita Braga's universe is one of colours, exuding both the charm of a vintage cartoon character merrily bouncing along and the ominous melancholy of a lost kitten on a rooftop. She will be introducing her new album "Bird on the Moon" www.superbraguita.com
GALINA JURITZ is a composer and violinist with extensive experience in diverse musical genres. Active for over 12 years her credits include film soundtracks and theatre pieces, numerous studio sessions and performances in both classical and contemporary outfits, and most recently a cantata. Galina Juritz will be playing her own material and joining Rita for some of her songs too.   www.galinajuritz.com
