Announcing a new Meetup for The World Music Meetup!


When: Thursday, November 18,[masked]:45 PM

Where: St Ethelburga's Centre

Les Triaboliques unites three of the UK's most inventive guitarists into one guitar super group. Combining their impressive musical backgrounds, the trio showcase their astonishing instrumental work on guitar, mandolin, Turkish saz and c?mb?ş

The definitive backroom boys step forward with their "Rivermudtwilight" tour brings them to St Ethelburga's Centre on Nov 18th

Justin Adams, Lu Edmonds & Ben Mandelson are Lest Triaboliques.
Les Triaboliques blend Justine?s desert-blues-soaked guitars with Lu?s Turkadelic saz and c?mb?ş and Ben?s mandolin/barizouki world-string- theories. Amplifiers, air, hands and voices at the ready to bring that famed Rivermudtwilight to you.

The definitive backroom boys step forward out of the session guitar crypt and into the murky glare that is dukore. Muddied but unbow?d the sultans of string have twanged their way through some the great rock bands of our age. Now, at last, they unleash rivermudtwilight on an unexpected public.
