Torabi will be supported by Karda Estra's Richard Wileman, marking the first time they have played a show together.

"This will be Kavus' first Swindon gig and is nestled in during his current busy Gong & Utopia Strong shows," say the organisers. "He will be playing one of his solo guitar, harmonium, vocal sets which includes music from his highly acclaimed 2020 album Hip To The Jag."

Swindon composer & songwriter Wileman will be joined by Amy Fry on vocals, clarinet and saxophone. He will be playing music from his solo albums, plus Karda Estra as well as music from his recent collaboration with Sanguine Hum's Matt Baber on Baber/Wileman.
