Tuesday 19th October: Midori Jaeger and Ella Hohnen-Ford

A great chance to see these two fantastic creative musicians performing together.

Cellist, singer and songwriter Midori Jaeger has paved her own intricate and intriguing sound-world with pizzicato cello riffs and serene vocals gliding effortlessly through warm, groove-led songs. Having taken a degree in classical cello at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Midori performs, records, and co-writes with various artists around the world as well as creating her own music.

 

Ella’s open ears and interest in a broad variety of styles have produced an unorthodox and genre-defying approach to writing and interpreting music. She is drawn to redefining the role of vocalist and narrator, blending her skills as an improviser and storyteller in the art she creates. She has toured the UK with a variety of projects including TreeClimbers, ELFTET, London Vocal Project and Threebop. She has been sought out for collaborations with trail-blazing artists such as Becca Stevens and many of the UK’s finest young composers. Ella has also been commissioned as a composer to write for the ten-piece choir, the Corvus Consort, and a suite for double bass and voice for NQ Jazz.

Tuesday 26th October: The Gulls

The Gulls are a four-piece rock & roll band living out on the road, the gritty old-fashioned way.

Their lifestyle is reflected in their music - daring, audacious and full of surprises.

 

The true genesis of The Gulls began when they set out in August 2020, touring through the pandemic. Their music was constantly being born in the back of their campervan, which carried them through Europe and landed them at a derelict chateau in France, where they recorded their debut album.

With the album freshly released and a dedicated new following, The Gulls have a fresh perspective for what the post-Covid music industry has to offer.
