Herb Robertson Trio at the FONT Music Festival 2005 (2nd August)
Herb Robertson has been one of the most active musicians on the scene for several years. Herb plays the horns in a lyrical and colourful way, often employing a range of mutes to make his sound more personal and unique. He met Gerry Hemingway 27 years ago. This lasting musical friendship leads to all kind of innovations incorporated into the music at least by those who love the eclectic approach. Okkyung Lee met Robertson just two years ago. Very quickly Herb was captivated by the theatrically way of playing her cello combining the classical style and her own improvising. This trio refuse to play into stereotypes.
