About the event
Very excited to welcome two sterling acts to FITR for the December Christmas edition of FITR!
Firstly, it will be a lovely chance to welcome very talented young drummer George Prentice-Povey to bring his quartet of gifted young musicians to the Bristol Fringe.
George Prentice-Povey- drums
Coren Sithers- saxophones
Huw Llewellyn- trumpet
Clem Saynor- bass
Meeting on the jazz Bmus at the Royal Welsh College of music and Drama, these guys have been making a significant impact on the jazz scene in Cardiff and are set to make waves on the wider UK scene in years to come. They tip their collective hats here to many of the great 'chordless' quartet of the past such as that of the Ornette Coleman group, as well as a whole host of contemporary influences and inspiration from folk and classical music also. This will be a corker!
Luke Annesley/ Dan Moore Duo-
It will be a massive joy to invite these two esteemed musicians of the SW jazz scene to showcase a fresh project bringing these two fantastic musical voices together at FITR for this special Christmas edition:
'A new collaboration between saxophone player Luke Annesley and keyboard maestro Dan Moore. For this project Luke plays alto and Dan Hammond organ.
Annesley’s playing career ranges from performing classic film scores with the John Wilson Orchestra, playing in quartet with the great guitarist Dave Cliff for a number of years, and improv-based projects such as his quartet Moonscape, with trumpet player Jim Howard. Luke is as at home playing from the ‘Great American Songbook’ as he is playing free improv (which he puts to use in his other career as a music therapist). He has a lyrical style as an improviser and composer. Since arriving in Bristol in 2021 he has been forming new musical collaborations here in both straight ahead and free improv contexts while also being heard back in London (his original home) in venues such as The Vortex, Ronnie Scott’s and Dean St Pizza Express, and in recording sessions (recently at Abbey Road recording alongside US drum superstar Pete Erskine).
Pianist Dan Moore is a musician based in Bristol, playing electric/acoustic piano, synthesizers and Hammond organ in a wide range of contexts. He developed his approach while studying contemporary music and performance at Dartington College of Arts. Since then, he has been in demand as a versatile musician, working with a wide range of artists such as Percy Sledge, Anna Calvi, Adrian Utley, Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley, Will Young, Marc Ford, Beth Orton, Tom Jones, Massive Attack, Roni Size, Krust, and Tony Allen and Run Logan Run. Dan played organ in the Pushy Doctors alongside saxophonist Andy Sheppard and drummer Tony Orrell before Andy emigrated to Portugal.'
This will be a fabulous night of music from a host of jazz talent, we hope to see you there for the yuletide cheer
