Zara McFarlane // The Cockpit, Marylebone // Monday 28th May

May 24, 2012

This coming Monday 28th  Zara McFarlane is headlining an evening curated by Jez Nelson, alongside Finn Peters and Cabal.  Zara has recently been supporting South African jazz legend Hugh Masekela, as well as performing a bunch of gigs with some of the greats of modern UK jazz, and continues to make waves with her consistently brilliant performances.

Finn Peters is rather a gifted young musician as well. He’s a multi-reeds player who also has a passion for and talent with electronics. He recorded a solo session for Jazz on BBC3 a year or so ago which blew me away but I’ve never seen him play solo live. May’s evening at the Cockpit is the night to put that right!

Trumpet player Sam Wooster is another artist who’s been receiving play on BBC Radio 3.  We’re really excited about seeing Sam’s collaborative band Cabal open proceedings. The trio, who’ve just released their first album, take inspiration from 1940s cartoons and films and their use of spoken word samples is really unusual.

If you’re a regular then you know the score. Lovely space, cool respectful audience, nice reasonable bar, cheap entrance. Three great acts and Jez Nelson playing some scratchy old vinyl before and after.  Plus we have live art from the excellent Gina Southgate. Tickets are a snip at £7! Get them here
