This will be, I think, the Fourth in what has become an annual fixture in the Moseley Festival – which looks to be seriously resurgent this year with over 80 events in more than 50 locations over 10 days between 26 June and 5 July 2009.
Last year’s gig went very well indeed – so much so that it inspired myself, Mick Perrier and Amran Ellahi to go on to create the Musituality concert together, which went down a treat at Birmingham Cathedral last month. More on Musituality, soon, meanwhile, check out Matt Murtagh’s beautiful pictures from last years Music by Candlelight – St Marys Church by candlelight is really quite special.
This year I’ve got another eclectic blend of deliightful and spiritually inspired music featuring:
The marvellously named Moksha Medicine Men – who played beautifully at the recent Project X event – featuring the nimble fingers of Rohit on Sitar, with bass and tabla playing some wonderful and intricate Indian music.
John Gerighty playing classically inspired acoustic guitar influenced in part by his Christian spirituality.
And finally, Eve and the Garden offering a feminine trio of vocals, harp and violin with Celtic and folky influences to the fore.
Plus I’ll be playing a set of my piano music.
It should be a lovely evening – its an 8pm start in the inspirational setting of St Marys Chuch (the big Church overlooking the Village) and its free in although your donations would be most welcome.
I usually get some refreshments sorted for the interval – a glass of red wine or orange juice can only help with the vibe!
