 To celebrate the arrival of the 'Beckstein' grand piano at dai hall we are very fortunate to present:


improvisation evening with

  • Lyn Hodnet,
  • Charlie Collins,
  • Mick Beck
  • Gillian Whiteley

Doors 19:00pm Concert 19:30pm approx.

(ticket also available at the door for £7)

This very first evening with our new grand piano at dai hall is celebrated with four improvisers from Sheffield.

The Beckstein piano was inherited from Mick Beck, a legendary saxophonist who ran a concert series OVER THE TOP in his beautiful living room in Sheffield over the decade. The piano is now re-installed and tuned in our space. There will be a very short talk about the piano by Mick, followed by a different combination of sets by four musicians from Sheffield.

A fascinating contemporary insight into Sheffield’s decades long tradition of cross platform musical experimentation.

Acknowledging no hierarchy in sound production, while incorporating sounds from a myriad of sources, the evening will be divided into a number of duo, trio, and a quartet performance. If it makes a sound, and fits in a bag, there’s a strong possibility it may be heard here. Maybe even the bag.
