The Elliot Galvin trio’s debut album ‘Dreamland’ takes its name from the dilapidated Margate amusement park of the same name. Playful and highly original, the music takes influence from a plethora of genres, with a strong emphasis on improvisation. Elliot Galvin, Tom McCredie and Simon Roth are all rising stars on the British improvised music scene, and this ensemble sees them reach new heights.
