Spider Music is an acoustic ensemble of Bristol-based improvising musicians from different backgrounds: classical, folk and jazz. They deliberately cross boundaries to create fresh sounds, both gigging and leading workshops for those wanting to explore their musical creativity.
Their eclectic set will include music drawing on Sudanese rhythms, Steve Reich grooves, an Anglican hymn, the number five, Russian orthodox bells and an image of punks in a park. Expect fascinating textures, rich harmonies and some lovely tunes.
