Ryder-Jones will also be performing a very special show in Manchester Cathedral as part of the Manchester Literature Festival on 9th October. Ryder-Jones will be joined by the Manchester Camerata in the first live performance of his landmark album If… Composed and recorded as a tribute to Italo Calvino’s playful, postmodern novel If On A Winter’s Night A Traveller, If… is a collection of cinematic songs that fuse exquisite strings and sublime orchestral movements with emotive, vocal led pieces.
