Unfurling Streams launch party and exhibition

The Unfurling Streams CD and limited edition box set launch party.

The CD Unfurling Streams by Monty Adkins with an exhibition of photographs, inspired by the music, made by Stephen Harvey

Hugely successful evening, thank you to everyone who made it. We turned the Kabin into an amazing exhibition space with warm welcomes and wonderful chat.

BJC would like to thank Monty Adkins for allowing BaconJam to organise this event, an enormous privilege to be part of it all.

Also the feedback from those who came was very positive indeed, so thank you for that.

Not forgetting The Coffee Kabin for their support & hospitality – Thank you.

Unfurling Streams – Album Launch party and exhibition

Friday March 20th at 8pm.

Celebration for the release of the CD, on Cronica, of the new work by Monty Adkins and complimentary images by Stephen Harvey.


Monty says:

Unfurling Streams – my new album on Crónica is out on 25th March but available now for pre-order here: https://cronica.bandcamp.com/album/unfurling-streams

This is a special release – alongside the digital album and limited edition CD, there is a Deluxe Special Edition of only 24 of the CD with twelve 10″x8″ original photographic prints by Stephen Harvey in handmade boxes.

The Deluxe Edition is available during pre-order and for a limited time after for only 40euros + packaging.

It is a really beautiful release and my thanks to Cronica and Stephen for helping make this beautiful artefact.

This should prove to be a very lovely evening.

Here are some pictures of the special limited edition box set which will be available for a very special price on the night.
