Bringing together progressive female percussionists creating immersive, genre busting new music…
Amy Thatcher and Fran Knowles
An expressive, mesmerising collaboration between two virtuosic performers. Together Amy Thatcher (Accordion) & Fran Knowles (Percussion) create inspired, progressive melodies that lay within a warm blanket of familiar jigs & reels.
Amy’s fully-formed and tuneful creativity is perfectly balanced by Frans beautifully intuitive, skilful drumming. The collaboration realises itself as a remarkable genre-busting performance.
“Amy is an Accordion star” – The Guardian
‘Power Out’ is an electrifying live performance by Sarah Heneghan that combines the raw acoustics of a traditional drum kit with electronic beats, lights and sounds. Sarah uses bespoke software to trigger lighting and projections, creating a truly immersive performance.
The impressive up and coming project has already received support from Manchester Jazz Festival (mjf) and Sage Gateshead talent development programmes.
