I have, from time to time, been lucky enough to be involved with Meson – a group of improvising musicians under the misguidance of Bo Meson, who gave me valuable support in getting involved with this Sheffield “scene”.
The music is improvised, setting the scene for Bo’s poetry! I’ve played various gigs with them and feature on several albums.
You can watch and listen to youtube videos from albums I played on.
The fifth Meson album was recorded at the Stag Works in June 2012 by Angelina Morelos (sitar), Bo Meson (vox), Ceri Ashton (flute/viola), Chris McMahon (bass) and Nick Robinson (guitar).
