Cath Roberts baritone saxophone / Sam Andreae alto saxophone / Anton Hunter guitar / Seth Bennett double bass / Johnny Hunter drums
Cath Roberts is a previous artist in residence at the festival and Sloth Racket is one of her long running projects. The band is an ongoing experiment into combining free improvisation with Cath’s compositions and has been wowing audiences since 2015. Expect heavy riffs, graphic scores, saxes, electric guitar, pedals, double bass and drums making a lot of noisy fun for everyone involved. They are touring on the back of a new album created at a residential recording session, resulting in an extended flexibility and even more enhanced group dynamics and interplay.
