This Obscene Baby Auction Presents
Cath and Phil Tyler
Newcastle folk duo make a long-awaited appearance in Bradford. Legends in their hometown Cath and Phil play Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle. Coming together musically through a shared love of traditional narrative song, full voiced sacred harp singing and sparse mountain banjo, they have performed on stages as diverse as the Royal Opera House in London and a dank tower in the old city walls of Newcastle.
Stephanie Hladowski and C. Joynes
Last year Bradford’s most stunning voice Stephanie Hladowski and Cambridge-based guitarist C. Joynes teamed up to make an album of traditional folk songs for Bo’Weavil recordings called The Wild Wild Berry. This gig will see them performing songs from the fast-becoming classic described on Boomkat as ‘superb and timeless’ and a record that has drawn attention to Steph as ‘folk singer of the year’.
In the café of the 1 in 12 Club, Albion St, Bradford. 8pm. For members and their guests £5/£4 members/guests.

This Obscene Baby Auction Presents
Free Jazz duo from Italy made of Virginia Genta (sax) and David Vanzan (drums) absolutely blazing it in the best way possible. Loved by Henry Rollins and Wire magazine alike, their endless pursuit of spiritual redemption through free music has resulted in a huge strew of releases; collaborations with notable characters including Merce Cunningham, Chris Corsano, Sonic Youth, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), and gigs, tours and residencies all over the world. Come see them create the good energy for Bradford.
The musical answer to the question; what should be done if three of the finest and most affable improvising musicians in the UK happen to all live in Bradford? A joyous collaboration of double bass, viola/vocals and trombone making it up in short bursts that are sad, energetic, unnerving, funny and intuitively composed. Seth has played in a ton of bands and groups from the DIY punk scene through to 7 Hertz, McWatt and countless Jazz projects. Aby and George were both members of Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra.
Matthew Bourne and Kit Downes
Matthew Bourne’s record topped Stewart Lees Best of 2012 List for The Sunday Times. He has been spotted in Delius Centre before tinkling the ivories for the Almost-Well-Tuned-Piano event and exploring the range of the organ when Trembling Bells came to town. For this event he will be joined by equally acclaimed Jazz pianist Kit Downes who Timeout described as ‘One of the finest pianists of his generation’, for a twin attack on the senses!
at Delius Arts and Cultural Centre, Great Horton Rd, Bradford. 8pm. £5 in.
