Noisy, dramatic and spectacular, Irresistible is a unique event in the rural beauty of The Cow & Calf and in the heart of London.
Driven by a life-long fascination with warning sirens, Jez Colborne can hear music where most of us hear noise. He is quite simply an irresistible force of nature.
The Call of Sirens is influenced by the mythical story of Odysseus, and how he survived the devastating sirens who used their beautiful hypnotic songs to lure sailors to their death. Join Jez as he takes you on a musical journey of alarms, other non-traditional instruments and songs to create a breath-taking symphony!
