Chris Garrick / John Etheridge

at Tolmen Centre, Falmouth

This event has been and gone.

Chris Garrick and John Etheridge
John Etheridge and Chris Garrick have been associated for many years. The duo provides a feast of interplay, improvisation and eclectic repertoire. Both players make extensive use of looping and other effects-creating exotic tapestries of sound, almost orchestral at times, yet can seamlessly switch to the most acoustic sound. They can evoke Reinhardt and Grappelli and then summon up the spirits of the electric avant-garde, atmospheric and hypnotic. They can roar, seduce, whisper. Jazzwise described their relationship as one of the most potent in European Jazz.
