Sunday 25th August (Doors 7.30pm / Music Starts 8.00pm)
The Bridge Hotel - Newcastle
£8 / £6 Concessions

Xhosa Cole (Tenor Sax) / Francis Tulip (Guitar) / Ben Lawrence (Keyboards) / Shivraj Singh (Bass) / Matt Mackellar (Drums)

Guitarist Francis Tulip is one of a new young generation of North East jazz musicians who have been making a major impression both for their technical fluency and - more importantly - for the levels of creativity to which they are putting their ability.

Currently studying at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire , he comes to the Bridge with a quintet that includes two of the second city's key players in bassist Shivraj Singh and saxophonist Xhosa Cole - who won the 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year award with what Iain Bellamy described as his “heartfelt, sincere and communicative” performances.

Delivering a mix of tunes from such iconic artists as John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter, this is a quintet that demonstrates a profound respect for the jazz tradition while being willing to give it their own contemporary spin.
