The Sirkis comes to town

More Friday night jazz at the Red Lion.

Birmingham Jazz host another multi-national event this week when the Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet perform at the Red Lion in the jewellery Quarter. The quartet is a fresh new collaboration between Israeli UK-resident drummer/composer Asaf Sirkis, and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas (Germany-resident). Completing theline-up are US-resident bassist and harmonica player Patrick Bettison, and the acclaimed Frank Harrison on piano and keyboards (UK).

With an emphasis on band interaction and sheer joy of playing, this band celebrates music from both collaborators, covering a wide range of influences such as contemporary classical music, Polish folk, South Indian & Middle Eastern music as well as a wide range of dynamics – from the most delicate ballad all the way to high-energy electric virtuoso lines and everything in between.

The quartet has recently been touring the UK and recording their new album Dreams Dreams, to be released later this month .

Friday 14th November, 7.45pm
The Red Lion, Warstone Lane, Birmingham. B18 6NG
Admission £12, Members £10 or Students £5
