The Vortex & Cafe OTO celebrate Evan Parker's 70th. 21, 23, 25 Oct at The Vortex
The Chaos Collective present another genre-pushing evening of live music.
The Elliot Galvin Trio was formed in 2012 and sees the meeting of three like- minded creatives. Exploring the possibilities of the traditional piano trio line-up with a sense of playful experimentation, the group play original material written by Elliot. The band effortlessly juggle a number of musical worlds as the realms of classical, jazz, popular and art music all make an appearance. This is held together with a free-spirited, improv sensibility which at times pushes the sonic capabilities and traditions of their instruments to another level. In 2014 they won the European Young Musician of The Year Award in German. They never fail to deliver a performance which perfectly balances technical virtuosity, a healthy dose of fun and playfulness as well as moments of captivating beauty.
“This debut album is just as audaciously accomplished as Galvin’s admirers would have predicted” 4 stars, John Fordham, The Guardian
Their Debut Album ‘Dreamland’ is available on the Chaos Colective label
