Thursday 6th April: All the way Canada Levi Cuss will be performing live.
The raw honesty typical in Levi Cuss‚ roots/blues music speaks to a life of redemption; from troubles with the law, addiction, incredible sadness and loss, to love, strength and perseverance. After the release of his debut album, War in 2013, Cuss has been touring throughout Western Canada and has had the privilege to attend two artist residencies at Banff Centre where his exposure to talented musicians from various genres have helped Cuss hone his craft. Upon completion of his first residency, Cuss headed south to Nashville Tennessee to record his second album, Night Thief, which quickly garnered attention in the roots/blue scene.
Cuss’ personal influences are those who have overcome diversity; he sees deep beauty in human strength, grit, and determination. His musical influences include the likes of Jason Isbell, Townes Van Zant, and Steve Earle; the dark, honesty in his music reflects these influences.
Ticket info TBC.

Suitable for ages 3+ / family audience
Running time: 50 minutes
Tickets: £8.03 (Adult) £5.90 (Child / concessions)

Thursday 20th April: Submotion Presents The Music of Cedar Walton
Rob Barron – Piano
Steve Fishwick – Trumpet
Matt Fishwick – Drums
Dave O Higgins – Tenor Sax
Dario De Lecce – Double BassSaturday
Tonight, a tribute to the music of one the late great composers and pianists in jazz – Cedar Walton! Cedar came to prominence with Art Blakey’s Jazz messengers alongside Freddie Hubbard and Wayne Shorter. His funky, blues soaked expressiveness, class and sophistication combined with his ability to write tunes that are listenable and make people feel good has kept him in good standing with the jazz record buying public for decades. Many of his tunes have become Jazz standards. Steve Fishwick is widely considered to be one of the best jazz trumpet players to come from the UK. Performances in New York and throughout Europe have helped him establish a global reputation. Steve and Matt Fishwick were lucky enough to record with Cedar in 2007 on the Hard Bop Records release ‘…With Cedar Walton’. Rob Barron has been described as one of the most creative pianists of his generation. His work as a jazz pianist has taken him all over the world and has played with visiting American artists Al Jarreau, Marlena Shaw, Benny Golson, Phil Woods, Grant Stewart, Sheryl Bailey and in groups lead by leading UK artists Jacqui Dankworth, Dave O’Higgins has been a mainstay on the London scene since the mid 1980’s. He is very active as a leader and sideman performing throughout Europe and America with his own groups and as a sideman. He has performed with many jazz luminaries such as Joe Locke, Joey Calderazzo, Eddie Gomez, Billy Childs, Dave Kikowski, Stephane Grappelli and Eric Alexander to name a few. Completing the band on bass is Dario De Lecce, one of the most in demand bassists on the London scene hailing from Southern Italy.
