Tuesday 19th November: People & Places + Wandering Stories

We’re kicking off our three-day festival-within-a-festival down at The Amersham TONIGHT with a splendid double-bill! Featuring music from SECollective maestros Sam Bullard and Arthur Lea, with a host of other local collaborators, it promises to be a wonderful evening of music inspired by travels both distant and more close to home…

Doors open at 8.30 with music from 9pm, and don’t forget we’re running a 3-day Festival Special: all 3 gigs this week for just £10! We look forward to seeing you down in New Cross this evening!

Sam Bullard's People & Places

Sam Bullard - Saxophones/Bass Clarinet

Dave Manington - Bass

John Blease - Drums

Mick Foster - Saxophones/Clarinet/Flute

George Hogg - Trumpet/Flugelhorn

Tom White - Trombone

Sam Bullard’s flexible ensemble morphs from classical quartet to improvising jazz trio and sextet with consummate ease. Chorales contrast with free improvisations, Latin grooves contrast with driving swing and brooding ballads.

Arthur Lea's Wandering Stories

Arthur Lea - Piano/Vocals

Alam Nathoo - Saxophone

Henrik Jensen - Bass

John Blease - Drums

Arthur Lea has been hammering honky tonks since his hands could first reach the keys. He sings a retro brand of rhythm n blues, irregular riffs, and southern soul. Think Professor Longhair with Blue Note oil - songs that travel from New Orleans to Nashville to New York to New Cross Gate.

Also this week: 

Wednesday 20th November: Acrobat + Dice Factory 

Thursday 21st November: Draw By Four + Pickpocket + Late Jam Session
