Festival Romance, May 1st Todmorden Unitarian Church with Daniel Thomas and Cathy Heyden/Roger Smal duo

Our band, Festival Romance, have our first show on May 1st, at 7pm, in Todmorden at the gigantic Unitarian Church on the top of the hill:


We will be performing alongside Daniel Thomas, and a duo of Cathy Heyden and Roger Smal.  The whole beautiful evening costs a meager 5 pounds, and there will be delicious local craft beers on sale, and maybe even home cooking.


We make experimental music, but we also have a strong interest in singing, and in improvisation.  Lately we have been making  a lot of songs based the chronicles of a warewolf who lives up on the moors and makes his daytime living as a milkman.  We play various instruments, and here are some tracks recorded in our practice space, though these are largely pre-Warewolf:

Cathy Heyden.
Autodidact sax improviser enjoys encounters with other musicians, dancers , comedians, poets and performers from all over the world such as Faust, Geoff Leigh, Jac Berrocal, Lost woman, Morihide Sawada.

Rogier Smal. A drummer who experiments with free percussion sounds. Besides playing in art collective Dagora he plays with different musicians and solo. Lately Rogier has been lucky enough to have been making sonic waves of liberty with gems like: Jaap Blonk, Marshall
Allen, Dylan Carlson, Eugene Chadbourne, Geoff Leigh, Ludo Mich, City Hands, Sunburned hand of the man, Mik Quantius, Daevid Allen, and many more.

Daniel Thomas
Solo performance from Daniel who is half of ‘Hagman’ and runs the Sheepscar Light Industrial label.
