The Shed challenges listeners with an ever-changing list of performers that the minds behind Smitty’s have curated to entertain and enlighten. You may think that going to see a classical accordionist or Indian Sarod player is out of your comfort zone, but trust that the Smitty’s team won’t lead you astray. The Shed is always forward thinking, but most importantly, always good.
New Simplicity Trio plays compositions by each member of the trio, And features three of the most in demand musicians on the European jazz scene. Having just returned from a tour of Italy, tonight's concert is part of the trio's UK debut album release tour: 'Common Spaces'.
The trio's compositions are centred around the ethos of melodic and harmonic simplicity. The name comes from the post serial movement of the 1950's contemporary classical German composers whose aim was to reject the complexity of serialism and instead compose memorable melodic and harmonic compositions.
