Singer songwriter Sarah Gillespie’s anti-war song The War on Trevor, is a 15-minute narrative piece based partly on Brahms’Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn. Set in London, The War on Trevor depicts the plights of an ordinary Londoner who suddenly finds himself accused of various wrong-doings, ranging from public indecency and infidelity to terrorism. We are never drawn into Trevor’s guilt or innocence. Instead we enter a sinister, Kafka-esque world in which guilt and innocence have become irrelevant. Gilad Atzmon -accordion sax and clarinet Ben Bastin – bass & cello, Enzo Zirilli drums, Sarah Gillespie guitar & vocals. Produced by Gilad Atzmon.
Sarah Gillespie & Band begin the War on Trevor tour this week at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club.
