Keith Waithe is an award-winning flautist, composer, teacher, proponent of vocal gymnastics and leader of the Macusi Players – a world music jazz band that blends rhythms from the Caribbean, South Africa, South America, Asia and Africa.
He’ll be appearing with a small group of guest players.
To open the evening Ealing Eclectic welcomes Allegra Shock, whose folky, punk-blues songwriting is delivered on the guitar and harp. She’ll bring the startling beauty of the harp and the human passion of the folk tradition to a generation bored with the predictable.
See Keith and Allegra at Ealing’s Cafe Zee on 8 March 2019.Find out more »

The Hanwell Hootie was launched on 6 April 2013 as a free event in four pubs to commemorate the unveiling that day of a black plaque to mark the birthplace of Marshall Amplification at 76 Uxbridge Road.
Since then the event has grown to become London’s biggest free one-day music event.
In 2018 the Hootie featured no fewer than 90 acts playing original compositions in 15 venues. The seventh, 2019 edition of the Hootie is expected to be even bigger.
