The drummers - Georgie and Alison - have over fifteen years of experience of touring and studying Taiko with Mugenkyo and Issho Taiko Drummers, and Alison with various groups in Canada, as well as studying with Kurumaya-sensei in Japan.
Dominic Waxing Lyrical is Edinburgh-based poet and musician Dominic Harris and an ever changing line up of musical collaborators. One of the most unsung lyrical talents of the past twenty years, Dominic first started performing in the 90s, becoming a celebrated artist in both the squat/punk and low-fi folk scenes. From Berlin to Amsterdam and then Edinburgh, Dominic has betrayed the sickly-sweet world of alibi lyrics with declamatory zeal. This is a rare chance to catch Dominic with full band at the CCA .
