Live Act Ethnojazz Folk Spoken Word
Alabaster DePlume - Ethnojazz Folk Spoken Word Live Act in Manchester

Alabaster DePlume Short Info

"I felt insulted and happy..."
"I had to keep laughing or I thought my heart would explode..."

Using a jazz band, a collection of original folk songs and his own words and behaviour, an invented character joins the audience in experiencing a moment of sheer delight and confusion.

The music, reminiscent of Japanese folk and Ethiopean jazz, is expanded and altered live by the small ensemble of excellent creative musicians. The moods that swell and glide counter the sincere and candid theatrical orations sharply, until the climax, where the show reaches its bewildered conclusion.

Featuring Alabaster DePlume (tenor sax, guitar, vocals) John Ellis (keys) and Paddy Steer (drums, lapsteel, bass pedals)

"Cheerfully uneasy" – Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3
“Quite unlike anything you’ll have heard before” – Bristol Post
“passionate, creative, unique, thought-provoking and delightful.” – Bido Lito Liverpool
"Harrowingly funny" – CityLife Manchester
