Played a couple of dates this weekend with the splendid Last Harbour, clip above captured by Mike from the Glossop gig.
Couple of videos from Quadelectronic 31 which took place in Leicester just before christmas.

Well, not Kalbakken in the usual sense! Below are a few choice bits of free playing from Kirsty (violin, voice) and myself (guitar, voice) recorded in Manchester last week.
Our side of the forthcoming 7″ on Smeraldina-Rima kind of marries some of this stuff within a song based structure.
Splendid times on Saturday at the Little Red Rabbit showcase with Last Harbour and Samson & Delilah, incredible acoustics in the space as well lead to some pretty interesting moments in our set; sound cascading back towards us and spreading harmonics through the roof. Olie Brice added some glorious low end to the band for the first time with double bass, we’ll hopefully see more of him at some point. More images at Last Harbour’s blog.
Amazing stained glass work behind the alter in the chapel too, segmented circular window with an angel in each segment playing an instrument. We could identify bowed psaltry, lute, double ended pan pipe, hurdy gurdy, cymbals, pump organ, hammered dulcimer and what looked like a radio!
We’re playing as part of a Little Red Rabbit curated performance at the Union Chapel in London on Saturday 3rd April along with labelmates Last Harbour and Samson and Delilah. Gig runs early afternoon 12-2pm.
Kalbakken will be joined by double bassist Olie Brice for a special one off set. Probably be one of our few performances this year due to various constraints…
