Circle festival, Fukuoka, 19.05.12...

Will Newsome`s EP, Winter Shed, is available on iTunes and amazon...


Circle festival at umi no nakamichi kohen in Fukuoka had a brilliant lineup - i feel very privileged to have played alongside these musicians...



Aside from playing with harada ikuko (above), whose songs i now have on constant repeat in my mind, standing out for me was the music of UA with her raw, soulful voice and passionate anti-nuclear stance:


Salyu Salyu with their brilliant vocal arrangements reminiscent of the dirty projectors collaboration with bjork and the 'le fil' days of camille:


And akiko yano, an incredible pianist and singer:


Now back in England, on the train to Bristol after this unexpectedly long trip away, excited about seeing my friends and thinking about getting prints ready for the utrophia exhibition and recording a couple of covers of Harada's songs...
