Lancaster Jazz Festival presents standout jazz artists from around the UK on the first Saturday of the month at The Hall, 10 China St, Lancaster LA1 1EX.

7.30pm start, £5 tickets

This month Lancaster Jazz Festival & Atkinsons present The 2017 Lancaster Jazz Festival Programme Launch featuring: Word of Moth

Word of Moth’s ‘spontaneous group explorations and tightly-scored, big-booted riffs’ were praised by Daniel Spicer in the Wire magazine after their appearance at LUME Festival in Summer 2016. The band is a collaborative quartet formed by saxophonists Cath Roberts (Sloth Racket) and Dee Byrne (Entropi) the previous year, to explore the intersection of freedom and structure. The baritone and alto saxes are joined by Seth Bennett on bass and Johnny Hunter on drums, creating a group sound with improvisation at its heart that isn’t afraid to dig into some heavy grooves too. They have appeared at Lancaster Jazz Festival and Jazzwerkstatt festival in Bern, Switzerland, and are currently working on their debut album.
