MONDAY 30TH NOVEMBER
Grew & Watts
Originally a quartet, Food now features founder members Ballamy and Strønen who invite like-minded musicians to join them, using sound, space, texture, and contrast to create ever-changing moods and environments for true improvisation.
GREW & WATTS
Grew & Watts: are Stephen Grew on piano and Trevor Watts on soprano and alto saxophones. The duo have a special union: two different generations with two differing musical roots.
Although both working within total improvisation, Grew has earlier classical interests and Watts is a free Improvisation veteran, S.M.E and Amalgam who hails from a Jazz background and is possibly better known for his work in his Moire Music Drum Orchestra.
