Maya Keys

Two contemporary pieces based on a Native American god Kokopelli by the Hopi tribe (United States) and another contemporary piece based on Japanese flute motifs with a familiar appearance by Bach’s Partita in la minor for solo flute, come take a journey through time and space! 

Robert Mitchell

True Think is a multi-generational, multi-cultural reflection of several periods of pianist Robert Mitchell’s journey. They perform the music from their new recording encompassing powerful songs of protest, love and peace blending electronic, jazz, RnB, spoken word, film and folk. 

“Searing musicianship and precisely declaimed poetry combined with a rich instrumental palette and impeccable ensemble playing, all punctuated by epic, euphoric improvisation.” 

Some Press Reviews:

Barney Stevenson Artistic Director, Marsden Jazz Festival 2022 

“Robert Mitchell has created an innovative but also accessible set of material on this album. It captures very successfully various elements of the current contemporary British music scene.” 
Tony Dudley-Evans, London Jazz News 

“Robert Mitchell is one of Britain’s finest and most versatile pianist-composer-improvisors” 
The Wire Magazine 

“There are two poems by Mr. Mitchell included in the liner notes, both of which show him to be a wonderfully thoughtful, articulate and probing poet of the highest order.” 

Ticket prices range from £15.00 per concert or £35.00 season ticket for all three concerts. Tickets available from Eventbrite.
