Simeon is the founder and curator of Brudenell Piano Sessions, which is a new semi-regular night of live music featuring piano-based music by artists from Leeds, the wider UK and beyond. Showcasing emerging artists and musicians from the world of modern/neo-classical instrumental music through to piano-based singer-songwriters, each night is carefully curated to showcase this wonderful instrument and the diverse & eclectic music being created and performed on it.
Taking place at the iconic Brudenell Social Club, each night will feature one singer-songwriter on the piano, with the other featured artists being drawn from the exciting and growing modern/neo-classical instrumental scene, in addition to musicians exploring elements of experimentation and improvisation that fall between neatly prescribed genre classifications. Through initiatives such as Piano Day, created by German pianist & composer Nils Frahm, the piano continues to inspire and enable musicians to create ever-increasing musical soundscapes. Finding opportunities to see and hear these artists perform live on a real piano is often quite difficult...Brudenell Piano Sessions seeks to try and challenge that.
Each lineup will try to highlight the outstanding musical output being created in Leeds, whilst also bringing some of the most interesting and creative musicians from the UK and abroad to the North.
NEXT EVENT: Sunday 25th November
Brudenell Piano Sessions is hosted & curated by Leeds-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker, in collaboration with Brudenell Social Club & High and Lonesome.
