We’re back to our usual monthly programming and kicking off an impressive Autumn season with two amazing bands! In no particular order…:
Elliot Galvin Trio:
Elliot Galvin – piano
Tom McCredie – double bass
Simon Roth – drums
The Elliot Galvin Trio was formed in 2012 and sees the meeting of three like- minded creatives. Exploring the possibilities of the traditional piano trio line-up with a sense of playful experimentation, the group play original material written by Elliot. The band effortlessly juggle a number of musical worlds as the realms of classical, jazz, popular and art music all make an appearance. This is held together with a free-spirited, improv sensibility which at times pushes the sonic capabilities and traditions of their instruments to another level. In 2014 they won the European Young Musician of The Year Award in German. They never fail to deliver a performance which perfectly balances technical virtuosity, a healthy dose of fun and playfulness as well as moments of captivating beauty.
‘This debut album is just as audaciously accomplished as Galvin’s admirers would have predicted.’

Ruth Goller – bass
Marek Dorcik – drums
