Francis Tulip Quintet  -  Sun Aug 25, 2019  |  07:45 pm
Admission £ 8.00 ( £ 6.00 concessions)
Guitarist Francis Tulip is one of a new young generation of North East jazz musicians who have been making a major impression both for their technical fluency and - more importantly - for the levels of creativity to which they are putting their ability.

Currently studying at Birmingham Conservatoire, he comes to the Bridge with a quintet that includes two of the second city's key players in bassist Shivraj Singh and saxophonist Xhosa Cole - who won the 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year award with what Iain Ballamy described as his “heartfelt, sincere and communicative” performance.

Delivering a mix of tunes from such iconic writers as John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter, this is a quintet that demonstrates a profound respect for the jazz tradition while being willing to give it their own contemporary spin.
