About the Event
Are you unskilled and unaware?
Welcome to the gig that showcases the opposite, featuring the unassuming brilliance of Dilettante, Fred Hills, Izzy Adams and Fari.
Exceptional multi-instrumentalist musicians - jacks of all trades and masters of every one of them.
Dilettante is an art-rock collective led by multi-instrumentalist Francesca Pidgeon and is based in Northern England. Primarily a guitarist and singer but, owing to a lack of social skills, she taught herself clarinet, saxophone, piano, bass and trumpet and bought a loop pedal in an attempt to avoid human contact. However, this proved difficult and she soon enlisted the aid of Aaron Collins-Wood (bass) Jack Mee (drums).
Inspired to play by the unique and revolutionary musicians that preceded him, Fred Hills incorporates his love of jazz, rock, prog, electronica, world and folk music into his colorful rhythms, melodic ‘open-handed’ beats and delicate guitar-based compositions.
Fred has written, recorded & toured with a number of esteemed UK artists including Ellie Ford, Michael Baker, Time For T & Mara Simpson. In June 2021, Fred was hired as musical director for multiple award-winning theatre show, ‘YOU’, which he composed for and performed several sold-out events at Brighton Fringe Festival.
Fred’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Incerto’, draws influences from The Cinematic Orchestra, White Denim, Jose Gonzales and others. This has been brought to life through collaborative efforts with producers and sound designers; Alex Barron and Aneek Thapar, who share Fred’s vision to create music and sounds that defy genres and cross traditional boundaries.
Izzy Adams comes from a classical music background, playing viola, clarinet, piano and singing.
With a unique soundscape of violin and piano underlined by bass and drums, her performances are dramatic with heartfelt and sometimes cruel lyricism.
