Efterklang To Perform Parades Twice This Summer
Published 21 May 2010 by BWL

Efterklang's Performing Parades project returns for two very special performances this summer. First up, on June 19, is a performance with Metropole Orkest at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam. On August 11 Efterklang team up with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra for a big open air concert for Stockholms Kulturfestival.

Performing Parades premiered in September 2008 when Efterklang collaborated with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra on a special performance of Efterklang's second album Parades. The album was performed in its entirety at Danish National Radio's new Koncerthuset concert hall. The spectacular performance featuring more than 50 musicians and scenography and costumes by Danish art and design studio Hvass&Hannibal was filmed and recorded. The concert was released as a CD+DVD and 2LP+DVD in October 2009.

In 2009 Efterklang collaborated with the Britten Sinfonia and performed Parades on two occasions in the UK. First at the Fuse Festival in Leeds, and later at a packed Barbican Hall in London in October 2009.

The dates of the new shows are as follows:

Saturday June 19
Muziekgebouw ann’t IJ, Holland Festival, Amsterdam, NL
Performing Parades with Metropole Orkest
Conducted by Vince Mendoza

Wednesday August 11
Stockholms Kulturfestival, SE
Performing Parades with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by Paul Hoskins

Mark Lockheart Wins Jazz Musician Of The Year
Published 21 May 2010 by TM

Polar Bear's Mark Lockheart won 'Musician Of The Year' at the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, which were held on Wednesday night at the House of Commons in London (aka a giant fresher's fair for new MPs, I would imagine).

The pic above shows Mark looking slightly awkward being presented with his award by Michael Connarty MP and Lord Tony Colwyn, Co-Chairmen of APPJAG (All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group, no less). Who wouldn't?

The last year has seen saxophonist Lockheart release Days Like These with the NDR Big Band along with Polar Bear's Peepers, which was released to great acclaim in March.

Polar Bear's band leader and percussionist, Seb Rochford, was also nominated for the same award. You can read more here.
