Description

Our popular Leighton Lates provide visitors with the chance to enjoy the house ‘out of hours’ until 9pm. With an atmosphere of their own, there is also the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary drink and listen to live music.

Friday 8 June - Live music from 6:30pm with Martin Speake and Alex Maguire

Virtuosos in search of new adventures. Alto saxophone and piano duo play improvisations and structured pieces influenced by a wide range of jazz and classical traditions.

Alex Maguire studied with Howard Riley and John Cage. He has since played internationally with artists such as Sean Bergin, Han Bennink, Peter Brotzman and Hatfield and the North. Heralded by the Guardian as “The finest piano player of his generation”.

Martin Speake, composer and improviser, is as comfortable playing Charlie Parker as free improvising with drummer Mark Sanders, playing standards with Ethan Iverson and Indian music with Dharambir Singh. “Speake is a strikingly talented improviser with a seemingly bottomless well of inspiration.” - Encyclopedia of Popular Music
