Listen! presents...

new, original and improvised music in Cambridge

Our Autumn 2022 programme continues...

Skylla + Margrit Hasler
Saturday 29th October

Weaving together vocal layers around chiming bass chords, harmonics and different tuning systems, Skylla explores the  bewitching, intimate, other worldly songs of celebrated bass player and composer Ruth Goller.

Ruth Goller ~ bass guitar and voice, 

Lauren Kinsella ~ voice, 

Alice Grant ~ voice


Margrit Hasler opens the evening with a solo set for viola with pedals, transforming a wide range of pieces by some of her favourite musicians, including Bill Frisell and Maurice Ravel, alongside a fresh approach to tunes from the bluegrass tradition.




Magpie Trio
Saturday 3rd December

Led by freewheeling drummer Sam Jesson, who describes the trio's approach to material as 'creative scavenging'. The band specialises in playing new arrangements of music associated with the acclaimed American pianist Ahmad Jamal. Note: Magpie Trio does not include a pianist!

Sam Jesson ~ drums

George Crowley ~ tenor saxophone
