Manchester Phoenix

Friday, September 23rd, 2005

Went to a really good little acousticcy night at the Manchester Phoenix yesterday. It was a fundraiser for the nascent Tsn Centre – a project to provide community music and learning in the city.

Highlight of the show was headliner Nancy Cunliffe – who plays harp, guitar, and a strange Thai string instrument called the Kim – kinda similar to a hammer dulcimer. Really great stuff, anyway – so good the I bought a CD…

She’s doing more gigs in Manchester in the near future, including one at Fuel in Withington – so I’ll keep you posted.
