Umbrella Fest 2011

November 7th, 2011

Just coming off of Umbrella Music Festival 2011, with so many highlights, great audiences, fantastic sets of music, etc. etc. it’s hard to detail it all.  Odean Pope Quartet with Marshall Allen at the Hideout was definitely a highlight, as was Sten Sandell solo at the Chicago Cultural Center.  That would probably get my vote for best set of the festival.  Tons of great press from the Tribune, Sun-Times, Chicago Reader, and TimeOut, including cover articles in the Reader and Sun-Times.  I also had the chance to work with Franz Hautzinger for the first time in a trio with Nick Butcher on electronics.  Some very interesting stuff as I delved into a world that I’m not often associated with….more opportunities to work with Franz later this month in Vienna.

Now heading out for a “solo” tour in Europe, joining lots of new faces for gigs in Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, and two solo concerts in Poland….will try to post from the road…

Cupcakes for the after party....

Mike Reed celebrates another fine year....
