Thomas Stronen's Time Is A Blind Guide

Time Is A Blind Guide is Thomas Strønen’s new Norwegian-British ensemble, whose self-titled album has been one of the standouts released on the legendary ECM label in the last few years. In contrast to Strønen's other project - Food and its electronic soundscapes, TIABG is an all-acoustic group which plays what its drummer-leader-composer calls “melodic music with a twist.” Beautiful strings and folk melodicism permeate the sound which also features Kit Downes at the piano.

Thomas Strønen: drums and percussion; Kit Downes: piano; Håkon Aase: violin; Ole Morten Vågan: double bass; Lucy Railton: cello

Gina Southgate & Alan Tomlinson

Our resident artist Gina Southgate is given centre stage for a live piece alongside improvising trombonist Alan Tomlinson. Watch out for an intriguing collaboration of paint, performance art, and free jazz.

One of London's most promising young bands combing the wonky-groove influences of Thundercat and Flying Lotus with heavy improvisation, grime and soul. Featuring a cast of one-to watch players;

Dominic Canning: Keys/Synth; Mansur Brown: Guitar; Ricco Komolafe: Bass; Benjamin Appiah: Drums
