Coming up: the new season of Tomorrow the Moon V with a brilliant lineup of young and old stars! Solar Flares, Trio Cucara, Alison Rayner Quartet, Electric Landladies, the Casamir Connection and more. Info from Blow The Fuse:
‘Kicking off on Thursday 12th October at the Vortex with a band led by the BBC Young Musician of the Year Alexandra Ridout. This is her first Vortex appearance and she is already a wonderful trumpet player at the age of 18. We actually played with her Mum, sax player Leigh Etherington, who featured on the very first Blow the Fuse album in 1994. So, it’s a real generational celebration night. Plus, a wonderful trio with Louise Elliott, Deirdre Cartwright and Alison Rayner. Buy tickets online hereScroll down to see the rest of the Autumn season and next time we’ll be announcing how to get your tickets for the Christmas Party of the Year – yes the Electric Landladies are back!
