*TOUR OF NEW ALBUM: THE BIG FRIENDLY ALBUM!*
The critically acclaimed trumpet player, improviser and composer Laura Jurd brings her distinct voice to the heart of everything she creates. Her compositions celebrate traditions of jazz, blues and folk from Europe to the Middle East, whilst masterfully conjuring influences of The Beatles and Stravinsky. Laura will treat us to her fourth album, The Big Friendly Album with the funky and brass-fuelled Big Friendly party band, including Corrie Dick and Ruth Goller.
Don't miss Laura and her brilliant band as they bring funky, friendly tunes and grooves-a-plenty.
