There has been little trombone poetry in recent weeks, with more attention being paid to the furthering of that hopeful creature, Click Beetle. At some point, it may repay the favour with a joint performance, if we find the right venue.
There was a welcome, and welcoming, debut trombone poetry gig at The Hundred Years Gallery in Hoxton, in cahoots with that seasoned crew of improvisers, APE, featuring the mysterious growlings of Grassy Noel. APE will be hosting other events on the last Friday of the month.
Below is a list of events involving a trombone.
