SARAH GILLESPIE TRIO at THE ALBION BEATNIK BOOKSTORE
SARAH GILLESPIE makes a return visit. She is simply the most original and impressive singer-songwriter around these days, with raw beat poetry inspired lyrics and a wacky, individual musical style, nodding to both jazz and folk with tinges of the Middle East, a bit of urban street banter thrown in, nodding to Bob Dylan and Bessie Smith along the way, in fact defying category. Often touring in Europe and now the States, this gig is part of Sarah's tour to launch the vinyl pressing of her latest CD, produced by Gilad Atzmon, Glory Days. With the superb KIT DOWNES on piano and BEN BASTIN on bass.
Also on the bill is a short set from ALLY CRAIG, a soulful, humorous and lyrical songwriter, with Kit Downes and Ben Bastin.
Here is the trailer for Sarah's last album:
