The Cameron Graves Trio at Fasching, April 11th

“Cameron Graves is a musical genius. He has an innovative approach to the piano that is completely unique. Cameron’s new album Planetary Prince is an amazing and almost unbelievable combination of modal jazz, romantic era European classical music, and mathematical death metal. A style so cool that it deserves its own genre. Cameron’s music has been inspiring me since I was thirteen years old and it still does today! I’m so glad he’s sharing it with the world!”
– Kamasi Washington

Art Walk on Hornsgatspuckeln in Södermalm, March 21st

Most art lovers head straight to one of Stockholm’s big galleries, but an unassuming neighbourhood in Södermalm is emerging as a much more interesting alternative. With  small independent galleries that display work by local artists, rather than big international stars, Hornsgatspuckeln is quickly becoming known as the city’s unofficial art quarter. See this article on www.routesnorth.com for more details

WHERE AND WHEN: We meet outside the Hilton Slussen, at 17.30 on March 21

COST: This event is free of charge

REGISTRATION
:  Please register no later than March 19th.

QUERIES: For further information, please contact board member Martin Dworén, martin.dworen@fryshuset.se or mobile 0768-987 004.
