Tony Allen, Kieran Hebden, Mike Patton and many more added to Meltdown 2009
Adding on to The Meltdown's already starry line-up (Yoko Ono, The Roots, Moby, Yo la Tengo, Baaba Maal and curator Ornette Coleman, etc...), will be none other than Afrobeat royalty Tony Allen who will open festivities on June 12th. On June 14th, guitarist Marc Ribot, saxophonist Evan Parker and drummer Han Bennink will appear for a collective improvisation. Jazz & Blues guitarist James Blood Ulmer will perform alongside Shlomo on June 16th. Reformed Faith No More frontman Mike Patton and multi-instrumentalist Fred Frith will collaborate on June 18th, as will Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet with jazz drummer Steve Reid on June 20th.
Tickets for these additions range from £8.50 to £35.00.
And don't miss out on tasteful freebies: Speakers Corner Quartet on June 13th, Acoustic Ladyland on June 14th, as well as Martin Speake's Mind & Time and Linda Hirst & Douglas Finch, and Led Bib, on June 19th.
