Flying Donkey Events brings you one of the UK’s standout jazz musicians at the beautiful Abbeydale Picture House.
Manchester based composer, producer, trumpeter, DJ and founder of Gondwana Records, Matthew Halsall is one of UK’s most creative talents.
A gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his music has explored his love of the transcendental spiritual and modal jazz of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as more contemporary dance music and electronica.
Tonight’s rare UK concert features regular collaborators pianist Taz Modi, bassist Gavin Barras and sublime jazz harpist Tori Handlsey. Drums TBA. Expect to hear music from Matthew’s last two albums, Into Forever and When The World Was One alongside new music.
Support comes from Caoilfhionn (pronounced Keelin) Rose a supremely talented singer-songwriter based in Manchester. Expect beguiling originals driven by Rose’s eclectic taste in music, with influences ranging from The Mummers to Polly Paulusma, Broadcast to Rachel Sermanni, Peter Broderick and many more. Her Gondwana Records debut recording Awaken will be released this Autumn.
