Robert Mitchell released his solo, left hand only album The Glimpse earlier this year and was well received by both by music critics and fans alike for it’s innovative concept on piano playing and composition. Robert also held a festival entitled ‘Leftitude’ just after the release at The Forge in Camden (London) for left hand only piano that featured a number of highly-acclaimed solo pianists – it was so successful that it’s planning a comeback early next year.
