Celebrating art, music and literature in NW LondonThe Hampstead Arts Festival has come a long way since its germination in 2012. They've managed to build a strong local following and fans in London, over the country and across the pond with their engaging and interesting programme of events. This year, there'll be twenty events across Hampstead's most intimate venues. With events exploring chamber music, jazz, song, literature, politics and film, this is a prime time festival for North-West London's calendar.
For this event, catch a jazz trio featuring saxophonist Trish Clowes, guitarist Chris Montague and pianist and organist Ross Stanley. Not having the engine room effect of bass and drums to rely on, these guys explore texture, melody, harmony and effects and employ the use of space and silence. This combination provides the intimacy of a chamber group with the thrill and excitement of a larger ensemble. It's not everyday you get to see live music like this.
