    Departure Lounge Collective is celebrating 15 years of experimental and improvised music making. In November 2001, James E Stephenson and Paul J Abbott (aka Mr WobblyHead) started the collective as undergraduates at the University of York, selling out their first concerts at Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall and then the National Centre for Early Music on the same day.

    Ever since, they have been delighting audiences throughout the UK with their unique and engaging approach to music. For this special birthday concert, 15 years to the day since their first performances they will be joined by musical friends old and new for an exhuberant and beautiful celebration in the stunning of environment of Holy Trinity Church.

    Departure Lounge has always stood out among improvisation groups for its attention to the needs of the audience, while continuing to push at the boundaries of musical invention. From soaring melodies to pulsing rhythmic experiments, expect to go on a special journey as the Departure Lounge return to their roots.

    The current line-up includes voice, oboe, flute, percussion, live electronics, electric guitars and synthesizers to create a fascinating world of musical invention in which the constraints of genre are ignored.

    Performers: 
    James E Stephenson: oboe, synths
    Paul J Abbott: voice, electric guitar, live electronics, synths
    Laura Kox: bass flute
    Alexandros Pepelasis: percussion.
