NORTH LONDON SHOWCASE WITH RORY BUTLER, AMAROUN AND ALEX HEDLEY

Karousel Music presents a North London Showcase.  Announcing a new season back at their original venue in Wood Green – Karamel, deep in the heart of Chocolate Factory 2. Karousel Music are curating the first lineup, and then from thereon the artists are curating with their support. Get ready for Pat Dam Smyth’s lineup in July. But first… what a start here tonight!

It’s really important to Karousel Music that they nurture the community not just at the industry events in central London; but also support those nights that traditionally are the artists’ favourite nights off the beaten track. Teaming up once more with Collage Arts, who have made it possible to continue to give 100% to the artists by covering the sound and room hire.

The venue is a 5 min walk from Wood Green tube on the Piccadilly Line (only 20 mins from King’s Cross, 40 mins from Brixton) and is the same from Alexandra Palace overground (15 mins from Old St, 12 mins from Highbury and Islington) and is a stone’s throw from Muswell Hill, Turnpike Lane and Crouch End.

Local Authority

Local Authority is an exciting instrumental group that came into being by chance when a one-off live improvised session came to the attention of Love Supreme Festival, which earned them a nomination by Jazz FM to open the festival. 
Local Authority is led by Ed Riches who has been guitarist of choice for Grammy-winner Bilal’s ‘Love Surreal’ & ‘In Another Life’ world tours, Miguel Atwood Ferguson’s ‘Suite for Ma Dukes’ Orchestra, DJ Jazzy Jeff’s ‘Playlist Sessions’, Ayanna Witter-Johnson’s ‘Black Panther’ ensemble and Zara McFarlane’s ‘If You Knew Her’ promo broadcasts. He has also been an integral soloist and accompanist for Marsha Ambrosius, Ntjam Rosie, Mica Paris, N’Dambi, Beth Rowley, Jacqui Dankworth, Nailah Porter, Omar, the London Horns and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. 
The project usually operates as a quartet featuring a revolving cast of incredible musicians: Joe Webb (keys), Dian Gasper (Keys), Ben Burrell (keys), Oscar Stieler (Keys), Lawrence Insula (bass), Karl Rasheed Abel (bass), Amadu Koroma (bass), Nathan Bossoh (bass) and Pete Hill (Drums), Sam Awotayo (Drums), Eddie Hick (Drums), Andrew McLean (Drums). 
The sound is vintage and current, utilising modern technology but also conjuring up the soulful vibes of the open air festivals of the 60s & 70s. A striking mixture of soul-jazz, country-blues, gospel & hip hop, with an edgy but accessible vibe, the music is raw, rootsy & down to earth.
