Rhodri Davies concert series in Swansea

Rhodri Davies is putting on four special events in Swansea this October, one of which will have Philip Corner perform in the Welsh city for the first time since the 1960s

Rhodri Davies will host four events in Swansea this October featuring a series of rare performances in the country from Philip Corner and Evan Parker.

The first of the four NAWR October events will happen on 1 October featuring Evan Parker and Jenn Kirby and is in collaboration with Swansea International Festival. The second event will happen on 8 October with Jason Kahn & Christian Wolfarth and Colin Webster & Graham Dunning in a night that bring together avant-garde musicians from the US, Switzerland and the UK. Next up will be on 12 October with Metal Meditations: Philip Corner, Phoebe Neville, Ian Holloway & David Pitt. The following night Philip Corner will then appear again, this time with Davies himself.

“It is a big thing to have Philip Corner back to play in Wales again since the last time he came in the 60s. It is also a rare performance for Evan in Swansea so the concerts are a bit special,” says Davies.
