Event description
“…Bzhezhinska shares with Alice (Coltrane) a mastery of the jazz harp.” ★★★★★ Will Hodgkinson, The Times, November 2017

About this Event

Polish/Ukrainian harpist Alina Bzhezhinska stormed the UK music scene in the end of 2017 when her quartet appeared at the Barbican during the EFG London Jazz Festival in a triple bill featuring Denys Baptiste and Pharoah Sanders - and has been nominated for Best Live Experience of the Year at the 2018 Jazz FM Awards.

In 2018 she produced her critically acclaimed album, Inspiration (Ubuntu Music), strongly supported by award winner saxophonist Tony Kofi, double bassist Larry Bartley and Australian drummer Joel Prime. She tells Alice and John Coltrane’s story through her own interpretation of their music and her compositions. “On Inspiration (the Alina Bzhezhinska Quartet) bathe deeply in the spirit of Alice and John’s majestic, meditative music, yet also use it as a point of departure for new personal directions. The journey is within, to a better place for humanity.”

Performed in the intimate chapel at the House of St Barnabas. Live on stage at 20:30

DJ set by Harvinder & Senrab after.
