Willkommen present: The Hand, Ichi and Jo Burke

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

For the next Willkommen night we’ve got a fine and eclectic mix of music in store. The Hand are a duo from Bristol who play mesmeric songs on kora and banjo. They toured in Japan last year with This is the Kit (who played a great Willkommen night last November) and while there struck up a rapport with Ichi.

Ichi takes the notion of a one-man band to new heights, conjuring up fun, surprising tunes from steel drum, trumpet, glock and more.

These musical compadres have been on the road in Europe and the UK since March this year, and I believe this is their last gig together before Ichi returns to Japan, so let’s make it one to remember!

Support comes from the delightful Jo Burke (of the Mary Hampton band and Laish), who will be performing her own material.

Friday 3rd July, Sanctuary Cella, Brighton, at 8pm. Tickets are £5 and are on sale online here and at Resident Records – 01273 6060312 – and Edgeworld Records.  More info here
