Event description

Description

Join our Summer Lates for the chance to visit Leighton House Museum and our temporary exhibition, Seven Halts on The Somme by Hughie O'Donoghue RA, after hours while enjoying live music with a complimentary glass of wine!

FRIDAY 16 SEPTEMBER FROM 6.30PM - LIVE MUSIC BY BAHLA

Bahla sonically paints a picture of the past, present and future of Jewish identity, channeled through the rich traditions of jazz. Although the pieces are delicately crafted, often with a classical Hebraic approach, they embrace the tradition of jazz composition and allow space for interpretation and innovation. The band draws inspiration from giants of jazz such as John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock and Bill Frisell, but also explores Middle Eastern traditions of improvisation.

In September the band will be leaving their amplifiers and drums at home for a one-off, intimate evening of completely unplugged and acoustic music in the beautiful settings of Leighton House Museum. 

Joseph Costi - Piano

Tal Janes - Acoustic Guitar/Banjo

Andrea Di Biase - Double Bass

Ben Brown - Percussion

FRIDAY 28 OCTOBER FROM 6.30PM - LIVE MUSIC BY Juliana Yazbeck

In partnership with Nour Festival of Arts

Juliana Yazbeck is a Lebanese singer, songwriter and composer. Born to refugee parents in New Jersey, USA, during the Lebanese Civil War, her mixed cultural background influences her music: lyrics in English and Arabic tackle gender, displacement, identity, racial inequality, war & peace, fusing Arabic aural traditions with soul and poetry. Juliana’s aim is to create a contrast between her unapologetically political lyrics and the transcendence/humanness of connecting with a live audience. 

>> Leighton House Museum remains open until 9pm (last entry 8.30pm). Music from 6.30pm.Ticket price includes access to Museum, temporary exhibition and a complimentary glass of wine

>> Tickets on the door only: Adult £7 | Concession £5 | National Trust 50% | Free with National Art Pass (Art Fund)
