Tickets €15 (plus €1.50 booking fee)

The collaboration between renowned drummer Jim White and acclaimed guitarist Marisa Anderson is a natural union of two of the most intuitive players and listeners working in music. White and Anderson are each very in-demand as collaborators in no small part because of their mastery, versatility and highly expressive playing. The duo have each amassed an impressive body of work, and remain at the vanguard of their practices due to an insatiable curiosity and delight in exploration of new avenues of expression. 2024 saw the release of their second collaboration Swallowtail.

Jim White is one of the most extraordinary drummers in the world, known best as a member of the great Australian band Dirty Three with Warren Ellis and Mick Turner (many may remember their unforgettable gig in the Spirit Store in 2004). He has played on records by PJ Harvey, Bill Callahan and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

Classically trained, Marisa Anderson honed her skills playing in country, jazz and circus bands. She channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Originally from Northern California, Anderson dropped out of college at age nineteen to walk across the US and eventually landed in Portland, Oregon, where she currently lives.
Support: Mark Corcoran/Zoe Backwell There will also be an exhibition of photographs by artist John Connolly from Bó Studios.
