Laura Cole Birthday Gig at Seven Arts
Seven Arts, Leeds
Friday 23rd May
Pianist and composer Laura Cole is to celebrate her 40th birthday with a gig at Seven Arts this evening, Friday 23rd May. The evening will feature Laura's large ensemble, The Bennett Cole Orchestra, as well as the Vuillamy/Murray/Bennett trio.
The Bennett Cole Orchestra, which Laura co-leads with bassist Seth Bennett, is a collection of improvising musicians that perform original works by both Laura and Seth. Their last appearance at Seven Arts was to a sold-out audience and tonight will also feature some special guests so is sure to be another unmissable gig.
