Recent and upcoming gigs
Toby Buckland's Garden Festival , Powderham Castle. 4th May 2019
I am really looking forward to spending the day in the beautiful surroundings of Powderham Castle playing handpan for this special event. I hope to see you there!
Dart Music Festival, Dartmouth. 11th May 2019
I'm going to be playing a handpan performance at the stunning Flavel Church at 12.00pm followed by a mixed percussion workshop at 3pm.
The workshop will include a short talk about the various percussion instruments that we will be using, including handpans, various West African drums, bells and shakers and cajons. We will be learning a rhythm called 'Yankadi' - a popular rhythm from Mali, which means ‘it is good to be here’. Time permitting, we will also hopefully touch on its more energetic partner rhythm, Macru. Whilst teaching the traditional arrangements of these rhythms, I have adapted them to play using various traditional as well as non-traditional instruments.
Although suitable for all, the pace of the workshop will be aimed at people who are not experienced percussionists.
HangOut UK 7th-10th September 2018
I will be playing a set at 12pm on Sunday on the Chameleon Stage at this incredible gathering. I attended Hangout last year for the first time, and the opportunity to play this year really is an absolute honour.
