Oriole and Basquiat Strings Tour May 2013

Oriole/ Basquiat Strings Double Bill May 2013 

Oriole and Basquiat Strings, two of Britain’s most popular instrumental groups, are touring together for the first time. Their leaders, Jonny Phillips and Ben Davis, are great friends who share a constant desire to create music that is fresh and alive. Oriole’s beguiling sound, which borrows from Brazilian and Spanish traditions, will be complimented by the jazz and classical influences of Basquiat Strings. The maverick drummer Seb Rochford will feature in both groups. The evening promises to be a journey through sonic landscapes, from raw, earthy warmth to delicate elegance and back again.
