Autumn programme at the Lescar

Will Butterworth with Ian McMillan 20 Sept

From Jez Matthews

Here’s The Lescar programme through to end of October. We cover the full range of possibility from classic jazz trio line-ups with a difference in Blind Monk and Revival Room (both featuring the energetic and creative Johnny Hunter), to the full-on double sax/guitar rock-influenced blast of Perpetual Motion Machine, and freedom and composition neatly balanced in the music of Entropi, led by the wonderful Dee Byrne. We’re extremely excited to welcome the incredible Arun Ghosh in October, and pianist Will Butterworth is joined by the much loved poet and voice of Radio 3’s The Verb Ian McMillan, reading text from Oscar Wilde, in September. Nik Svarc brings his Scofield/Frisell inspired guitar trio in October, and another pianist, Philip Clouts makes a long overdue appearance later in the same month bringing a relaxed and infectious African-inspired vibe to our backroom. Finally I reach a significant birthday in October and what better way to celebrate than an ELEVEN piece band of brilliant emerging talents led by Birmingham-based bass clarinet/baritone sax/flute player Alicia Gardener-Trejo, and featuring her own compositions and arrangements.
