We’re getting a bit excited about Cheltenham Jazz Festival’s upcoming gigs at the end of this month so thought we ought to let you know what’s in store on the second bank holiday weekend.
Catch trip-hop duo Lamb at Cheltenham Town Hall on 30th; since their separation to focus on solo projects in 2004, we’ve missed Lamb’s unique sound, the mixture of Lou Rhodes’ mesmerizing voice with Andy Barlow’s experimental electro-acoustic jazzy sounds. Here is the chance to see them perform tracks from their highly anticipated new album ‘5’. We’ve got spine tingles just thinking about it.
Hot on their heels, at the Town Hall on May 1st Roots Manuva will be bounding in with his inspirational and honest take on British multi-culture, weaving together a beautiful tapestry of dub, funk and grime into his deliciously original brand of hip hop. In support, Ninja Tune’s prodigy Bonobo will be mixing breaks with hip hop, soul folk with jazz to present a beautiful soundscape to get your lugs atrembling. This is a ridiculously good combination for some bank holiday joy so go on and treat yourself.
