Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Paul Edis performs a solo set of new songs and compositions using looping and electronics to create memorable melodies and tell stories.

Francis Tulip and Ben Lawrence

Both prodigiously talented young musicians from the North East, Tulip (guitar) and Lawrence (piano) met when they started performing together as teenagers in Jambone and the Early Bird Band. They have been playing together ever since in various different groups at venues across the region and beyond. For this set, the duo will play a mix of contemporary jazz and original compositions rooted in the jazz tradition.

This concert is being streamed for free in support of Sage Gateshead’s ongoing three-year Crisis, Recovery and Renaissance fundraising campaign which was set up in response to the urgent financial challenge presented by Covid-19.
