May 2019 Gigs

22nd @ Bull’s Head – Tony Woods Project

Tony WoodsAs part of their Arts Council Tour, the TWP comes home tonight to the Bull’s Head. Whilst happily shifting gear between jigs and reels, Balkan dances, atmospheric ballads and ambient electronics, Tony Woods’ jazz connections also play their part in his compositions, where Latin, African, funk and rock grooves come to the fore. The emphasis, both in the compositions and the improvisations, is always on lyrical melody.
