Imagine if the world was almost destroyed and there were just a few survivors left. With the goal of building a new positive world from the wreckage of the past, what sort of music would these musicians make?
After the Flood is a conceptual instrumental band hailing from Liverpool, UK featuring guitarist/composers Neil Campbell (Bulbs/Neil Campbell Collective) and Marty Snape (Mighty Zeb/Bulbs), along with Roger Gardiner (Dead Poppies) on Overwater bass and Norwegian ace Viktor Nordberg (Viktor Nordberg Trio) on drums.
The band creates a pan-global music where each musician is an equal part of the whole, drawing on minimalism, folk music, progressive rock, African, Indian and other indigenous musical styles.
At this lunchtime concert, they will perform an extended set of original music drawn from their eponymous 2018 debut album alongside newer tracks and pieces from Neil Campbell’s 2021 album The Great Escape.
Part of the Lunchtime Concert Series.
