CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
No-one embodies the dramatic transformation of British Jazz over the past few years better than sax player Courtney Pine. Direct from the London Jazz Festival this is the first national tour of Courtney Pineâs new work Europa, a mammoth, musical history charting the birth of Europe. With inspiration from Gregorian chants, the warmth of Mediterranean music and the evocative melodies of the far north, Courtney traces a series of stepping stones that lead to the sounds of today's European generations. Pine has assembled a heavyweight musical line-up that includes Zoe Rahman on Piano and Cuban violin star Omar Puente. Performers Courtney Pine, Robert Fordjour (drums), Darren Taylor (doubel bass), Zoe Rahman (acoustic piano), Cameron Pierre (mandolin and acoustic guitrar), Omar Puente (electric violin), Courtney Pine (bass clarinet).
