Looking for music in London tonight? [Oct. 17th, 2014|11:18 am]

Then may I recommend the Dorten Yonder CD launch, 8.00 o' clock, upstairs at the Exmouth Arms, Starcross Street, London NW1 2HR?

Dorten Yonder are: Richard Cryan, Maggie and Pete Eiseman-Renyard, Janette Lawrence and Neil Rogers. Plus sets from special guests Keith Beechey (harp) and Hannah Chutzpah (performance poet) - but the reason to go is that the band came together to record a set of songs by Maggie Eiseman-Renyard, and the songs really are something special.

I wish I could be there - I did quite seriously consider making the trip to London, but it really isn't a good time (we're not at the Lakes Comics Festival for the same reason). I shall, however, be listening to Resonance FM at two o' clock this afternoon, when Neil, Jan and Pete will be talking about the CD and playing some tracks (there's a repeat at 8.00 am on Monday morning).

Declaration of interest: my brother is in the band. That's how come I've heard them in rehearsal, and am so excited that the CD is finally launching.

Dorten Yonder

That is an excellent name for a band.

It's one of those names that only emerged after they'd been all around the houses and failed to find anything that everyone liked. They had finally settled on something that everyone could tolerate, and then out of the blue Maggie produced Dorten Yonder. It's not only an excellent name for a band, it fits her songs perfectly.
