So, even a fool can tell this website needs a total, start-from-scratch redo, and to be more frequently updated. HOWEVER, before I get time to make that happen, there are a couple of things I need to share which I'm very excited about!
Between 10-12 October, Whirlwind Recordings (with whom I'm proud to be signed) are putting on their debut festival. As the banner above says, 18 bands and 86 musicians over just 3 days at Kings Place, which to my mind has two of the best (if not the best) rooms for live music of all sorts in London. The line-up is staggering; album launches, new bands - the amazing blend of international and the best UK musicians which this label has come to embody. I'm really looking forward to playing the festival as part of a new band, the Whirlwind Quartet, which is me, Tom Gibbs, Euan Burton and Dave Hamblett - should be a lot of fun, and with any luck it might turn into something regular! All info and ticket booking can be found here - http://www.kingsplace.co.uk/whats-on-book-tickets/curated-weeks/whirlwind-festival#.UgTtQWTEphw - but get on it folks, I expect these gigs will sell pretty quick...
In other news, in a couple of weeks I'm climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for a great charity which does incredible work with the residents of Kibera, a sprawling urban slum in Nairobi. You can find out more and sponsor me here: http://www.justgiving.com/George-Crowley.
Thanks folks, enjoy the rest of the summer, and see you at the Whirlwind Festival!
