Can confirm that this pair sounds great 50' underground:

Mazaika Duo, made up of two highly talented, passionate and versatile musicians, offers an intoxicating blend of Russian Folk and Gypsy songs, classical showpieces, tango and Igor's original compositions. On violin and accordion, Sarah and Igor will be playing in our vast Thames Tunnel shaft, 50 foot below ground.

Sarah Harrison is a violin virtuoso and improviser. Igor Outkine is a Russian singer and a master accordion player. Artists they have worked with include Marc Almond, Fascinating Aida, Antonio Forcione, Django Bates and Loyko.

Access to the underground venue involves bending low through a short tunnel and descending a solid scaffold staircase. We recommend an extra layer and flat shoes.

I can confirm that they are a wonderful duo, having seen them at one of Garth & Leon's "Princes" nights. I saw Igor more recently providing an improvised accordion accompaniment to an old silent movie, "Piccadilly". Sorry I can't be there as I'm going to see a Sean O'Casey play. I hope others here can get along, it should be a real treat.

Thanks Norman, shame you're not free - enjoy the play! Yes, I've heard him play to the film Nosferatu. Mazaika have played a couple of times before here and their sound works really well in our very unusual space.
