Sarah Gillespie Quartet

A sonic reflection of the contemporary London street, Greenwich-born singer-songwriter Sarah Gillespie delivers a melting-pot mix of urban-folk and middle-eastern blues.

Expect emotive ballads & raucous gypsy swing incorporating pre-rock elements of blues & vaudeville - with her trademark lyricism that knits everyday banter with raw poetry.

Her dynamite band features internationally renowned Israeli-born jazz artist, Gilad Atzmon on accordion, clarinet and saxophone, Ben Bastin on double bass and Asaf Sirkis on drums.

"She's an incandescent new presence who matches her imposing delivery with superior lyrics." John Fordham, The Guardian ****

"Haunting tunes and striking lyrics.... these songs are by turns tough and touching as well as being full of humorous asides such as the notion that the Girl from Ipanema has ended up as tabloid fodder...yearningly pretty and bitter sweet" Howard Male, The Independent ****

"A leftfield singersongwriter...wry lyrics and sinuous melodies" John Bunjey, Mojo **** 

Tickets: 10.
