Calling all parents who are missing going to gigs in the evening. From the organisers of the renowned Tots Tunes, Tea + a gig is a monthly morning series of acoustic gigs for parents, and babies with discerning musical taste!
Bringing to the stage an eclectic mix of talented musicians from the London world, jazz and folk music scene, every month we programme a new artist/band. These are gigs to be enjoyed by listening, appreciative audiences of parents and tots alike.
This winter/spring season, Tea + a gig presents an all female line up of strings and voices, with twists of Transylvanian folk, Balkan song, Indian classical melodies and contemporary improvisation.

New Year gig PROGRAMME...
Performing on Tuesday February 6th:
Duo Folclore - Folky-classical violin duo Alice Barron and Fuensanta Zambrana Ruiz explore a concoction of traditional music, folk-inspired classical duets and improvisations. They present their own arrangements of music from their English and Spanish roots, as well as delving into the compositional minds of Béla Bartók, Luciano Berio and Astor Piazzolla.
Francesca Ter-Berg (cello) and Dee Byrne (Saxophone) present a live improvised set which seeks to explore the natural resonances of their instrument and the space around them. The performance will be interspersed with elements of audience participation, creative improvisation games and talk about some of their techniques and approaches to improvisation.
Tea + a gig is a linked project of Tots Tunes, sharing folk, jazz & world music with big and small audiences run by SoundsCreative Projects
