The duo of Kit Downes on organ and Tom Challenger on saxophone perform ahead of exciting prospects into 2018. Kit is the Mercury-nominated pianist and leader of groups such as Tricko and Enemy. Tom Challenger works in groups such as Dice Factory and Brassmask.
Tonight they are joined by singer Ingebjørg Loe Bjørnstad, whose own album with accordionist Frode Halti, is of songs haltingly sung in Sunardal dialect.
“Enticingly strange and wonderful sounds, so odd you can hardly believe it’s an organ making them” – Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, 2014
“Downes and Challenger are onto something here and it goes beyond niche or novelty. Wedding Music deserves a spot near the top of this year’s best” – Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz, 2013
