Sunday 10/09 Big Sky QuartetBig Sky Quartet, four kindred spirits with a wealth of musical experience and talent have turned their backs to the London scene and have put down roots in the Welsh Borders, creating their own blend of self-penned lyrical tunes propelled along by distinctively Brazilian and world rhythms. Happily following in the giant steps of musicians like Weather Report, Joe Lovano and Chick Corea, Big Sky are producing an accessible, melodic jazz fusion that is picking up new fans wherever they play. A great Gig last time they played and we are assured of a superb evening!!!
Sunday 17/09 Eira/Snow"Horovel at the Queens Head" - World music fused with various jazz and folk elements. A real eclectic mix from this diverse duo.

In his compositions Örjan Hultén moves effortlessly across boundaries and musical genres. Here and there Middle Eastern and Balkan traits can be heard while one can distinguish traces from Wayne Shorter or Joni Mitchell in other parts. Örjan Hultén Orion is featuring four of Sweden’s top musicians, each of them a wellknown and celebrated musician/bandleader in his own right. This is the first time the quartet is touring the UK. Örjan Hultén – saxophones, Torbjörn Gulz – piano, Filip Augustson – bass, Peter Danemo - drums
