Sunday, September 22nd – 2pm
Slug Teacher

$15 suggested donation.

Dave Tidball, clarinets;
Galen Grant, percussion

Dave writes, “The name Slug Teacher is derived from a line in the poem Here In This Spring, written in 1933 by iconic Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. I’ve long been fascinated by his work, not least for the sheer musicality of the rhythms, textures and timbres of his creations. Slug Teacher takes off on musical explorations directly inspired by the poems.

“My accomplice in these adventures is the master percussionist Galen Grant. I will be reading six of my favourite Dylan Thomas poems. Spaces which occur naturally in the poems (between verses sometimes, but also at other times) will be augmented by spontaneous improvisations by myself on clarinet and bass clarinet along with Galen on drums. Please join us for what promises to be a unique experience.”
