Preston Jam Music Festival: Avant Garden
Thu 30 March 2017, 19:30 – 23:00 BST
Avant Garden is an evening of music performance with guest artists supported by our very own Univeristy of Central Lancashire students from the BA (Hons) Music course. Come and join us to hear this live music collaboration which will be something a little different to what you may be used to.
An excellent evening of varied music-making, featuring the jazz-fusion guitar legend and ex-Isotope band leader Gary Boyle. A central figure in the British jazz-rock scene, Gary played with Trinity, Doggerell Bank and East Wind before forming Isotope. Following a successful run with the band, Boyle began a solo career and has released a number of highly regarded albums. We are proud to welcome Gary to Preston for a performance at Preston Jam. Supporting Gary Boyle is Cold Bath Street, a raging 4/5/6/7 piece band that builds grand music from small phrases, moving effortlessly between genres: not to be missed! The evening will also feature original music by students from the University of Central Lancashire BA (Hons) Music course, a course that covers non-standard approaches to music-making.
Recently devised music will be presented by students from the University of Central Lancashire BA (Hons) Music course - a hands-on course that covers non-standard and non-mainstream approaches to music-making. We look forward to finding out what the students have been working on.
Preston Jam is a brand new music festival curated by the University of Central Lancashire in partnership with the Ribble Valley Jazz Festival. The festival will be delving into jazz, exploring all its diverse forms from rap to hip-hop to electronica. Whether you are part of a band or just passionate about music, come along and experience the feeling of freedom music can create by exploring the different styles and genres that the 21st century has to offer.
The festival will run from Saturday 25 March to Saturday 1 April, with a variety of musical and academic events including community events, seminars and gigs with an opportunity to get involved in the local music scene.
