The Grubby Mitts with support from Bob Stanley (St Etienne, DJ set)

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

In a rare London show to mark the end of Andy Holden’s Natural Selection exhibition, the Grubby Mitts will explore one of the exhibition’s central themes - collecting - through a selection of compositions combining spoken word, objects and music.

Central to the show will be a theatrical 'unboxing' of Holden’s late Grandmother's collection of ceramic cats to a live soundtrack, this extended piece will weave a narrative through which the various cats are introduced. The programme will also feature a new composition built from transcriptions of bird song played on tuned-percussion and a host of older Grubby Mitts songs reinterpreted by a new and expanded line up.
