Daylight is pleased to work once again with their favourite multi-instrumentalist - and legend – Terry Edwards (Tindersticks, PJ Harvey, Gallon Drunk, Holy Holy, Jerry Dammers etc).

In his latest curation for the series Terry takes time to examine, explore and dissect his musical DNA alongside the music and musicians who have accompanied him in some way or spirit over the course of his career.

With The NJE (Near Jazz Experience) Terry is joined by Mark Bedford and Simon Charterton, two of Terry's oldest musical friends. The trio is supplemented on this occasion by special guest Davey Payne - a huge influence on Terry with his signature saxophone playing with Ian Dury and The Blockheads.

The humour and music of Harpo Marx looms large in Terry's formative years. He has invited Rachel Horton-Kitchlew to fill St John's with the glorious sound of the harp - a sly nod and a wink to his vaudeville hero.

Yova came up on Terry's radar via Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey) and her co-writer Mark T. Vernon who managed John Cale - whose work has inspired him since 1975. 

The final piece of the puzzle is pianist Pete Saunders (Dexys) who deftly joins the dots on the afternoon and this four-dimensional Venn diagram, depicting Edwards' bringing together all the pieces of his singular approach to music 

Any time spent in the company of Mr Terry Edwards never fails to be a pleasure and captivating joy.

Coinciding with this event is the release of The NJE new album - Live in London, half of which features the band live at our series and in this space a few years past. https://thenje.bandcamp.com/album/live-in-london 

Update - due to two rejected arts funding attempts, the future of our series is under threat. These could potentially be our last shows. We need your help to continue - https://justgiving.com/crowdfunding/daylightmusic15
