Gloves Are On – Kris Halpin tours with Mi.Mu Gloves


Our Associate Musician Kris Halpin will be touring this January with Attitude Is Everything as part of Independent Venue Week, sharing new music played live with Mi.Mu Gloves.

Kris said:
“I’m incredibly excited to bring this amazing technology with me on my first UK tour. My condition has threatened to rob me of my musicianship and performing live has been increasingly difficult – however, I knew when Drake Music introduced me to Imogen Heap and the team at Mi.Mu that the gloves could give it me back.

In reality, they bring so much more. They are an incredible instrument that allow complex arrangements to be performed in a natural, expressive way and for the first time ever, I will be performing a live show that will bring my vision from the studio to the stage.

As someone who has access needs, I passionately believe in the work that Attitude Is Everything are doing to make live music more accessible to disabled people. Independent Venue Week is also something I see as hugely important – it supports the most interesting and unique venues this country has to offer.”

We are really excited about this opportunity to see the gloves live in action and about the very special guest who will be joining Kris on his London date – our Advocate Imogen Heap!

Bringing together influences including Bjork, Kurt Cobain and Depeche Mode, Kris’s band Winter of 82 are described creating wondrously spooky, wintry musical landscapes.
