Pizzica and prison

Had my first concert for the Sound Res Festival in the Puglia region of Italy last night, with a bunch of amazing local singers who sing a type of tarantella called Pizzica . I arranged a couple of these traditional tunes, and we had an amazing festival house band of about 25 musicians to back up the singers. Now I’m off to play a completely improvised show in a women’s prison, with David Cossin on drums and Luca Tarantino on bass. I’ve never done anything quite like this…very exciting!
