PADDY STEER (Manchester)
“Paddy is a Zelig-like character along the timeline of Manchester’s musical activity. It’s a testament to his musicality that he has played with such a wide range of music and artists over the years, be it as a bass player, drummer, Hawaiian guitarist etc. or all these roles at the same time.
In rejection of the notion of ‘immaculate reproduction’, live performances are more daringly and admirably on the frontier of chaotic abstraction, expression and focussed blunder, dice rolling down the hill in case of duende, as from behind his stacked array of instruments, the anarchically intrepid punk gargles through a vocoder with his xylophone, all a-clatter under disco lights and doilies.”
HARRY MERRY (Rotterdam)
Harry is the idiosyncratic songwriter and entertainer from Rotterdam West who will present his unique brand of entertainment. With wild keyboard arrangements, odd chord changes, a tone scale and voice of its own.
This event is made possible with support of Gemeente Rotterdam and Popunie.
