Music Charge: £14.00
PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE AS A LIVE STREAM
Pianist/composer Kate Williams has gained a reputation as both a distinctive writer and performer. She has released several CDs, each one to critical acclaim, including ‘Made Up’ and ‘Atlas and Vulcana’ (with her septet) and ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ (with tenor legend, the late Bobby Wellins). In 2016 she formed Four Plus Three, an ensemble featuring her trio with string quartet. The following year, they performed at the 606 with special guest John Williams (Kate's father) on guitar. John also features on Kate's album with vocalist Georgia Mancio, ‘Finding Home: Kate Williams' Four Plus Three Meets Georgia Mancio’ which won Album of the Year at the 2020 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. This evening the quartet will play tunes by US guitarist Emily Remler and Bill Evans as well as originals by Kate and features Mike Outram-guitar, Oli Hayhurst-bass and Jon Scott-drums.
