Rachel Musson and Corey Mwamba first performed in November 2013, and enjoyed it so much they promised each other they’d do it again before the year is out. With this gig they’ve just about kept that promise! Look forward to dynamic, explorative music full of twists and surprises from this improvising duo.

Rachel is a saxophonist, improviser and composer living in London, UK.She is involved with a variety of improvisation-based projects, one of which, a trio featuring Liam Noble and Mark Sanders has just released an album on Babel Label. She collaborates in a trio with Julie Kjaer and Hannah Marshall, and is also a member of a variety of other ensembles with artists such as Olie Brice, Rowland Sutherland, Alex Ward. She is also a 2014 Sound and Music Portfolio Improviser.

Corey is a Derby-based vibraphone player who is highly sought after for his original approach to the instrument. His playing and composition draws on a wide palette of sounds and influences. His main working band, a trio with Dave Kane and Joshua Blackmore has recorded and performed to much critical acclaim.
