Trish Clowes - My Iris

Legends Festival 18

Trish Clowes has been described as “one of the most agile and original jugglers of improv and adventurous composition to have appeared in the UK in recent times” (John Fordham, the Guardian). A BASCA British Composer Award winner and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Clowes has received critical acclaim for all four of her releases for Basho Records. The latest, My Iris, has been described as “musical wizardry”

Clowes’ intricate compositions juxtapose startling melodies and ethereal whispers with gnarly lines and earthy grooves. Having completed a highly successful launch tour for the My Iris album (released in January 2017 on Basho Records), the band will be on the road again in the UK and Ireland in January and February 2018 with some new material in the mix. Past appearances include Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Stadthaus Ulm (Germany), EFG London Jazz Festival and broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and Radio Bremen (Germany).

Trish Clowes saxophones, Chris Montague guitar, Ross Stanley piano and Hammond organ and Tim Giles drums
