Fred Frith, co-founder in 1968 of the British jazz and art rock group Henry Cow, is one of the most important musicians of his generation. With his Week-End Mixtape we get an insight into the musical preferences of the free-spirited Brit, who left a lasting impression at our festival in 2019. Conventions play a subordinate role in Frith’s world, and for his selection of songs, he trawls the depths of his eclectic taste, unburdened by genre or period, much as he does in his own works.
