Having studied in Poland, and now based in London, Ukrainian born Alina Bzhezhinska is an internationally renowned harpist, and a winner of the PRSF 'Women Make Music' Award. She has performed with leading classical and jazz musicians such as Shabaka Hutchings, Django Bates, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and the Glasgow String Quartet. Her duo, with award-winning jazz vocalist Niki King, has supported Gregory Porter.

Alina’s critically acclaimed Quartet appeared at the EFG London Jazz Festival 2017 in a special triple bill featuring Denys Baptiste and Pharoah Sanders - this ’Concert for Alice and John' was nominated for Best Live Experience of the Year at the 2018 Jazz FM Awards. It's a great pleasure to welcome Alina to Newcastle for the first in a series of co-promotions between Jazz North East and Gosforth Civic Theatre Jazz Club.

“The Alina Bzhezhinska Quartet bathe deeply in the spirit of Alice and John Coltrane's majestic, meditative music, yet also use it as a point of departure for new personal directions. The journey is within, to a better place for humanity”
Kevin Le Gendre
