The Ian McMillan
Orchestra is a meeting of words and music...poet Ian McMillan
and composer Luke Carver Goss create a soundworld of stories,
songs, memories, tales and the odd hurdy gurdy solo with the aid
of a group of amazing musicians. There's something new here, something
indefinable, something beyond the idea of poet intoning as the
instruments noodle in the background.
you'll hear forgotten moments from history, excursions into deep
dark woods and an iPod-disrupted trip on a cross-country train...
words are the candlesticks that light up life's banqueting hall'
as De Tropeville
said in 1768.
