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 »

London’s largest free one-day music festival is happening on Saturday 11 May 2019 with over 100 bands playing at the 17 venues of the seventh annual Hanwell Hootie.
The first Hanwell Hootie took place on 6 April 2013 as a free event in four pubs to commemorate the unveiling that day of a black plaque at 147-149 Uxbridge Road, London W7 3ST to mark the birthplace of Marshall Amplification at 76 Uxbridge Road.
Since then the Hootie has played a major role in the regeneration of Hanwell – showing how music heritage can help reinvigorate the present and the future.
Programme booklets are available now at Boston Manor underground station and the 17 venues.
