Next week will be a very busy one for clarinettist Chris Caldwell and flautist Susie Hodder-Williams.

They will be travelling to Odessa in the Ukraine to attend the 18th 'International Festival of Modern Art' and particularly the 'Two Days and Two Nights of New Music' which will take place on Saturday and Sunday 21/22 April.

Chris and Susie will not only be hearing a lot of exciting new music - much of it home-grown in the Ukraine - but will also play a set of their own. They are booked to play at 2am on the first night (i.e. Sunday morning!).

Click on the image above to see the full details of how Sunday morning will start in Odessa.

Chris and Susie's 'Music on the Edge' set looks very impressive:

Flute, bass clarinet, saxophone - Tibetan singing bowl! What a combination.

And we can hear that set right here in the UK! - Right here in Devon!

Music on the Edge will be 'Live at the Long Room' at the Drewe Arms in Drewsteignton

Tuesday 17th April 8.30pm

(Tricky to find, but well worth the effort - EX6 6QN if you have a navigation aid
 - just take the A30 towards Okehampton, take the Cheriton Bishop turn-off
continue to Crockernwell, then there's a narrow road on the left, just past the village
 - which will take you all the way to Drewsteignton!)

In the Long Room, in front of a roaring fire (it's still quite nippy on the moor at night!),
we can have a sneak preview of what music lovers in the Crimea will be enjoying at the weekend.

Want to 'try before you buy'? - Tune in to Phonic FM on the morning of Tuesday 17th April, between 10 and 12 am, and hear Chris and Susie play for us on the 'Classical Journey'.

Wherever you are, you can enjoy the exciting new sounds of 'Music on the Edge'!
