At different times of the day and night, he will be visited by musicians who will jam alongside him, and if you want to send him ideas for the new songs – use facebook (pete moser) or twitter (@petemoser).

His latest musical marathon takes place during a three-week visit to Hong Kong and mainland China as part of More Music International’s work.

More Music has been developing in China since 2006.

This work began as a response to the Morecambe Bay cockle picking tragedy of February 2004 when 23 Chinese workers lost their lives at sea.

During November, Pete will run workshops, perform and research the music and culture of Hong Kong and China.

In Macau, Pete’s one-man band will take part in the opening parade of the Macau

Festival and in Hong Kong, a training event and shows will complete a six month songwriting project, Hong Kong Tales.

In Xiamen, new partnerships will be developed with funding from the British Council Connections through Culture scheme.

The whole journey will be documented as always in a blog on the site Over the past eight years, more than 140 blog posts tell the story of this remarkable journey.

n Lancaster music promoters ECP Promotions are drawing towards the end of their brief tenure as the area’s most active promotions outfit with their penultimate event this month at The Park Hotel.

The all-day event on November 24 sees Edinburgh’s critically- acclaimed indie-folksters Meursault headline during the evening as part of their UK tour. Their releases to date have been well received, and in 2009 The Skinny placed the band’s debut album, at Number 16 in their Scottish Albums of the Decade list, while their second full-length release, All Creatures Will Make Merry, has been reviewed favourably by a number of notable media outlets including the BBC, Pitchfork, Bearded, Clash, The List and The Skinny.

Other highlights during the evening include Lancaster’s own Stephen Hudson & The Fiat Pandas, an act that has received support from Radio 2 and 
6Music on the back of recent single Everything Electric, and also The Balkanics who wowed audiences at the Lancaster Music Festival in 
October and will bring a more eastern European feel to the evening.

The afternoon acoustic session opens the day and includes some of the best local talent with Mirrorkill headlining a strong line-up which includes Harvey Lord, Plainview, Idiot Johnson, Daniel Ray and Paul Levy.

Tickets are available via and are priced at £3 afternoon, £4.50 evening and £6 all day.
