Reviews:

Best in their joint concert were two compositions by one of the percussionists, Damien Harron, who combined the two families of instruments effectively in Convergence and provided entertainment with Hand Luggage Only, an extremely funny demonstration of how many small instruments can be crammed into four small suitcases. Back Beat finished with triumphant playing upon the jewel cases of their CD; yes, it was on sale outside...Peter Grahame Woolf, seen and heard (music on the web)

‘a riotous piece involving four percussionists, an orchestra and a children's choir…It was the climactic bit of the Prom… amazing, and joyous' Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph

‘the world premiere of Damien Harron's Carnival of Rhythms went down a storm'. Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

BackBeat, also veterans of PLG Young Artists, offered three pieces by one of their members, Damien Harron. Gear Train was the night's highlight, mechanistic but with heart and wit, fingers and elbows chopping drums, wood blocks and baby cymbals.Geoff Brown, The Times

It was the physical presence and performance skill of "Black Hair" that was really impressive. They lived the music and put themselves and their instruments deep into the process. The percussion work of Damien Harron was so vibrant and impressive… Michael O'Rourke, The Munster Express
