Legendary DJ and artist Miss Kittin has created
this stunning rework of ‘Great River Road’,
exploring the path of the Mississipi river

Daylight Music 333
The Union Chapel, Compton Terrace
London, UK

Saturday 14th of March, from 12 to 2pm

‘..quietly revel in the pure pleasure of new, often unexpected, musical delights..’

Following the invitation from the wonderful people
of Daylight Music and the Union Chapel to use their unique organ,
I will be teaming up with the super-talented resident organist Jay M Richardson to present exclusively a brand new piece of music.

Taken from what will be the next album ‘1:46:43’,
‘The Green Cathedral’ is the second movement of this work.
Inspired by the iconic cycling climb of Mont Ventoux,
it is an artistic response to the second part of that epic ascension.

Please arrive at 12 o’clock to see Stubbleman
and these two equally remarkable artists:
The Hackoustic Orchestra and Henrik Lindstrandt
