Quercus returns to Turner Sims Hall for an evening of mesmerising, lyrical chamber music.

Three of the UK’s most creative, multi award winning musicians come together as Quercus to create exquisite chamber music that weaves together the essence of folk and jazz. Drawing on their life’s work including original compositions, traditional folk songs and reclaimed standards, Quercus subtly colours each song to create a magical atmosphere.

But always that voice wins you over... Unafraid, unadorned and completely beautiful.
— Chris Jones, BBC Music

Trio Brasil is award winning Welsh pianist Huw Warren’s celebration of his lifelong love affair with the music of Brazil. Iain joins the trio for this session at Swansea Jazzland.

Re-interpreting familiar and less familiar Brazilian classics by Hermeto Pascoal, Tom Jobin, Joyce, Guinga, Egberto Gismonti, Pixinguinha and more… The incredible diversity of Samba, Baião, Forró, Frevo, Maracatu, Choro and lyrical song are all celebrated with an infectious groove heavy approach. Dazzling virtuosity meets deeply lyrical poignancy in music that can make you laugh, cry and want to dance.
