"This remarkable quartet has evolved its own musical language". The Observer ****

Co-Led by one of the most versatile and exciting vocalists on the UK jazz scene Brigitte Beraha and ‘formidably skilled’ UK pianist Barry Green, the all-star contemporary jazz quartet Babelfish craft multi-lingual songs into little musical gems. Between them they have played with the great and the good of jazz and have been garnering rave reviews since their 2012 debut album for their beautiful musical renderings drawn from an eclectic songbook. Fast-paced tunes about sushi, free jazz, contemporary classical or traditional folk: as any Hitchhiker will know, the Babelfish will translate from any language into your own. Performing songs from their three albums to date and more, this concert will be their first in-person performance of 2021 so promises to be joyous!
