Apart from the snow while travelling by van, The Alvaret Ensemble had a good first small tour. From the Prague-show with Hauschka you can find some great pics here, a nice Czech review here and a radio interview with Jan and Greg here.
Budapest was pretty awesome too and on the Facebook page of the Akvárium Klub you can find some pics. For those who wondered where the secret show in Munich was, it was at Carlos Cipa's place. Full house! The Essen-show at the Weststadthalle was filmed completely. Don't know if the footage will reach the internet, but stay tuned...

Last but not least it was a true pleasure to play and visit the Ambient Fest in Cologne. Meeting all the other musicians and sharing the stage with Insa Donja Kai and Lubomyr Melnik... All cool. Check the video by Dmitry Zakharov, featering a bit of The Alvaret Ensemble.
We thank all of you that came to the shows. Keep an eye on 'the alvarets' through their facebook page and/or Romke's. In March the band will tour The Netherlands with the Cross Linx Fest. See ya.

The Alvaret Ensemble is hitting the road for a few gigs in January. We kick off on the 14th in Prague together with Hauschka in Palác Akropolis. Info here! A day later we are performing in Budapest at the Akvárium Klub with also Subroute Roots and Iketa playing. Info here! Then we head for Munich, where we'll do a kind of secret show on the 16th, only for a limited number of guests. On the 18th we're doing a Denovali label evening in the Weststadthalle in Essen. Greg Haines will do a solo show there as well as jamming along with The Alvaret Ensemble. Info here! Last but not least we are guests on the Ambient Festival in Cologne, which has a pretty cool line up this year. Take a look for yourself here! We'll be playing the fourth and last evening of the fest, with Insa Donja Kai and Lubomyr Melnyk. So, wir freuen uns jetzt!

In March and April The Alvaret Ensemble will be playing the Cross-Linx Festival in The Netherlands and the Denovali Swingfest in Berlin. Check the live dates on this blog.
