“Force of nature”, Brooklyn’s Max ZT, is an innovator of his instrument. His unorthodox playing and bold experimental style have led him to be described as the “Jimi Hendrix of hammered dulcimer” (NPR). This, his first solo UK tour, sees him pushing the boundaries even further as he embraces the spoken word, soulful singing, and “lyrics that avert your gaze to the sky” (BBC Radio 6) of award-winning Black Country singer-songwriter Dan Whitehouse.
All three artists (including Ainsley Hamill who is special guest this evening) were selected to represent their countries in the international Global Music Match project back in May, when Dan found himself in lockdown in Japan.
Max and Dan pair collaborated online – interweaving poetry and song with music which fuses multi-cultural roots and traditions – to create a truly compelling and innovative sound. They also both collaborated with Ainsley and are so happy she will be able to join them tonight.
Alongside compositions from a joint EP release (available exclusively at the live gigs on this tour) both artists will also perform solo material – Dan from latest release Dreamland Tomorrow (Reveal Records) and Max ZT from his forthcoming debut solo album Daybreak (Six Degrees Records).
