Description

An exciting double header for the opening night of SPECTRUM festival with two of the hottest acts on the UK jazz scene!

SONS OF KEMET

After a thrilling live show in Dublin in April 2016, MOBO award-winners Sons of Kemet return to Dublin as part of SPECTRUM! This rambunctious double-drumming quartet led by saxophonist/clarinettist Shabaka Hutchings, creates a revolutionary mix of jazz, rock, dub and Caribbean folk.

Hutchings, who was recently name-checked by the New York Times in a round-up of best live jazz performances of 2017, draws on a motley collection of influences, bringing links to early Caribbean and Rastafarian music, Afrobeat rhythms and funky New Orleans brass into play. This intriguing melting pot is fuelled by the voracious beats of the two drummers Tom Skinner and Eddie Hick, overlaid with Theon Cross’s versatile tuba playing, which lends both bass and melody to the tracks.

This is jazz, but not as you know it. It’s fresh, accessible, loaded with cultural capital…and you will dance.

“One of the hippest new UK bands... almost certain to dominate the ‘best of’ lists at the end of the year” - The Guardian

SNOWPOET

Snowpoet, the London based band led by songwriting duo of Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year (2016) Lauren Kinsella and multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. Dublin native Lauren Kinsella is held in high regard on the international jazz scene, and in recent years has performed for Irish audiences with Snowpoet as well as other projects Blue Eyed Hawk, the Lauren Kinsella Quintet and Thought-fox

Celebrating the release of their 2nd album Thought You Knew with an extensive UK and Irish Tour, including this date at SPECTRUM festival, Snowpoet are taking their musical collaboration and compelling sound to the next level, blending sweet hook-laden vocal lines with warm and lush arrangements. This music is infectious, delicate and tasteful. With a new home at Edition Records, they are set to reach new heights in their profile, confirming their reputation as one of the most innovative and creative new bands in the UK today.

Snowpoet also features Josh Arcoleo on saxophone, Matt Robinson on keys, Nick Costley-White on guitar and Dave Hamblett on drums.
