Drums

Brooklyn-based Sean Noonan first made an impression on Tyneside audiences as leader of ferocious punk-jazz trio The Hub. In recent years he has become increasingly interested in the drumming traditions of West Africa, and the possibilities of using music as a form of story telling - in fact he has sometimes referred to himself as "an Irish-American griot". In whatever context, his playing is marked by a tumultuous energy and hair-trigger rhythmic shifts that leave audiences open-mouthed in astonishment.
