|I am organizing a set of gigs in the U.K. and elsewhere during December 2008 and January 2009.
In addition, I am looking for venues in Ireland to host performances by Paul Dunmall, Mark Sanders, Jamie Smith and myself (Han-earl Park) in January/February of 2009. See the performance proposal (PDF) for more information.
I welcome performance organizations, promoters and/or venues to get in touch.

Changes to the performance schedule: new Edinburgh gig on November 26th 2007. Thanks to all, and Martin Parker and Lin Zhang in particular, for helping patch-up the cancelled Edinburgh gig.
Launch the new website at www.busterandfriends.com. I expect the usual teething problems, so please contact me if you find any bugs. Currently the audio/video files are still hosted at music.calarts.edu, but, as more stuff is updated in the coming weeks, these should also migrate here. Many thanks to music.calarts.edu for hosting us for so long.
