Celebrating their new collaborations with local playrights
Nel Begley on vocals, Jamil Sheriff keyboards, Sam Vicary bass, and Katie Patterson drums.
Rafe’s Dilemma celebrate literature, music and theatre. This young quartet brings together an eclectic mix of jazz, electronica and rock to tell stories of families on the edge. Collaborating with local playwrights they will be performing new written and improvised material – spoken word, improvisation, synthesised soundscapes and carefully crafted songs.
Originally formed as a commission for the Bolton Worktown festival they were a highlight of the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival in 2018.
