Sax supremo Courtney Pine live in concert with his full band.

Join legendary British jazz artist Courtney Pine for an unforgettable evening of calypso, ska and Afro-Caribbean music with his incredible House Of Legends show.

No musician more embodies the dramatic transformation in the British jazz scene over the past twenty years than saxophonist Courtney Pine CBE. The ground breaking multi-instrumentalist has led a generation of exciting and innovative players who have broadened their styles to take jazz out to a wider audience.

In the 80s he was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene when his debut album charted in the Top 40 (going silver and the earning the front cover of NME!), and some 20 years on he continues to break new ground with a string of highly acclaimed recordings and relentless touring.

He has released 15 studio albums under his own name and is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading jazz musicians, constantly pushing the boundaries of the genre and remaining firmly at the cutting edge of the UK scene.

Don’t miss this chance to see one of the UK’s top musicians up close and personal.

Courtney will be joined by Robert Fordjour (drums/dube), Vidal Montgomery (double bass), Cameron Pierre (guitar), Chris Cobbson (guitar), and Samuel Dubois (steel pan, soprano saxo, ewi).

Please note, this is an all-standing event.
