Richard Spaven

Colston Hall Presents at Rough Trade Bristol

Arguably one of the most open-eared and adventurous drummers around, Richard is a man who inhabits two worlds: he trained as a jazz drummer but drum & bass and broken beat is his internal heartbeat. Bringing his “fierce, fastmoving set” (The Guardian) to Rough Trade Bristol with guitarist Stuart McCallum (Cinematic Orchestra) and bassist Robin Mullarkey (Jacob Collier), Spaven’s “snare-drum shuffles and lurching offbeats” offer contemporary electronica with the feel of a live album.

Plus support from Ålesund
