Originally from Tottenham, Byron Wallen has lived in Woolwich, South East London, for nearly 20 years. He was commissioned by PRS For Music Foundation to compose a suite of music celebrating his chosen home town, a suite which became known as ‘Anthem for Woolwich’. Reflecting on Woolwich’s vibrancy, multiculturalism and lively community spirit, the suite is a portrait of a once paramount part of London in a time of transformational promise.
Byron’s work draws inspiration from contemporary and indigenous cultures. His passionate musical knowledge and his fascination with the human spirit is evident in this new music which is breath-taking in its excitement and depth.
Line Up: Byron Wallen – Trumpet, Rob Luft – Guitar, Paul Michael – Bass and Rod Youngs - Drums
