Yesterday was an extremely epic day having signed the contract at Holmfirth Picturedome with Gary Numan for the Numan/Skaparis Tour in November.
Gary was playing at the Holmfirth Picturedome and we managed to sit together for about an hour before he went on stage, fleshing out more details for the Tour and talking through how the arrangements are working.
Gary’s set was incredible last night and we had the great privilege of hanging out with the band and Gary’s family, sharing a few beers after the show!
Many thanks to Paul Dixon for the great shot.
I’m very privileged to have Stephanie Halsey as the Skaparis Orchestra’s harpist for the Numan/Skaparis Tour.
Steph is an amazing player with a great deal of experience performing in high profile concerts.
I’ve just been working with her on Harp techniques as it’s a very complex instrument and requires the correct terms to be written in her music. She can’t wait to play!
Here working with Jan Bradley the Skaparis’s Multi-Percussionist for the Numan/Skaparis Tour in his basement percussion studio at his home earlier today.
I don’t think I’ve seen such an amazing array of different and cool percussion instruments in one space!
