Double Bill: Burden of Paradise and Stuart McCallum's City

An evening of beautiful music – like jazz, but better….

7:45pm: Burden of Paradise. No drums. Just voice, saxophone and a pulsing engine room of double bass and guitar. Burden of Paradise’s unique interpretations of evocative songs from Dylan to Dowland are spell-binding. Helen Watson (vocals), Snake Davis (saxophone), Dave Bowie (double bass) and Mark Cresswell (guitar).

9pm: City is Stuart McCallum (guitarist of The Cinematic Orchestra) and Richard Spaven’s beautiful ambient-electronica-jazz soundscape. Using grooves that blend contemporary jazz and bass-heavy down-tempo electronica, McCallum’s new work leaves your head nodding and feet tapping, with its layered guitar harmonies, synth pads, soulful vocal lines from special guest vocalist Zoe Chlotis and great keyboards from John Ellis.
