FRED FRITH: MIX TAPE

On Sunday 3 April we’ll perform a mix of music by composers hand-picked for their daring, originality and experimental approach, including a brand new piece by George Lewis. He’s written Tales of the Traveler, an improvisational work for guitar and ensemble performed by the inimitable Fred Frith.

Want to know what “one of the most innovative guitarists of this or any age” is listening to right now? Well that’s lucky, because we asked him:
