Jonathan Kreisberg Quartet in Leeds, May 22nd
World class guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg is bringing his quartet to perform at Wharf Chambers in Leeds on Monday 22nd May, as well as an afternoon workshop.
Thanks to David Beebee and the team at the Guitar Hour, jazz audiences in the North will get to see this internationally renowned quartet perform in a small, intimate venue.
Combining timeless melodicism with forward–thinking lines and textures, the music of Jonathan Kreisberg continues to attract a growing international fan base. His compositions have been performed by his groundbreaking quartet on five continents. As a guitarist, his sound and technique has influenced the next generation of players and has arguably contributed to the evolution of the instrument in jazz. For their show at Wharf Chambers, JKQ will perform music from WAVE UPON WAVE as well as brand new compositions that combine jazz tradition, instrumental virtuosity, modern soundscapes and influences from every corner of the world and beyond.
A workshop will run at Wharf Chambers at 3.30pm and tickets for this cost £20 (£15 for students). The gig starts at 9pm and tickets cost £15. Tickets for both parts of the day can be purchased online at the Guitar Hour's Ticket Tailor page.
