The North Atlantic Trio combine Irish, Scottish, Old-time Appalachian and bluegrass music with their own original compositions in a unique cross-genre bricolage. Formed in 2009 around a fireplace in Glasgow, this unusual marriage of harp, dobro and esoteric percussion has been warmly received by audiences at festivals throughout Europe and in venues across the UK.
Best known as the fiery, game-changing drummer from the 1960’s British supergroup Cream (w/ Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce), Ginger Baker is a true music pioneer. Inspired by a love of African rhythms and the drumming of jazz greats Art Blakey, Max Roach and Elvin Jones, Ginger s unique style of drumming created the foundation for an entirely new sound in rock music. Now, on the heels of the 2012 documentary Beware of Mr. Baker , which brought him and his fascinating life to a wider public, Ginger Baker takes the influences that helped shape him and puts them front and center with his powerhouse Jazz Confusion quartet on WHY?, his first new album in 16 years.
