Anthony Reynolds Sings Syd Barrett

Just a quick reminder that Anthony Reynolds, formerly of this parish (oh, he's back again), will be performing Syd Barrett songs at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff (Saturday, 14 November, 9pm).

I'm a big fan of Reynolds' Jacques Brel-esque oeuvre so I'm curious to see how he'll tackle Barrett's particular brand of English psychedelia. I understand the songs will be given a classical emphasis. Intriguing.

The concert will be conducted by Italian composer and musicologist Marco Lenzi. Also lending a hand will be Dave Stapleton on piano. This event forms part of Chapter's always interesting Experimentica season. Ticketing details here.
