Where: Bristol Beacon & St George’s
When: Friday 1 & Saturday 2 October 2021
Tickets: www.bristolbeacon.org | 0117 203 4040 | hello@bristolbeacon.org

Enjoy a special weekend of music celebrating the inimitable, Bristol born musician Keith Tippett. This event promises to be a dazzling snapshot of a brilliant musician who made such an indelible mark on the international contemporary music scene.

Avant Garde jazz, contemporary classical, jazz-rock fusion and even pop, Tippett was a unique musical character and one of the most creative figures of the European music scene. 

This two-day event explores much of his incredible body of work, starting off in Bristol Beacon’s foyer in homage to The Rare Music Club. 

The line-up features sets by Chris Wood, David Le Page & Philip Sheppard, Theo May and Paul Dunmall – so you can enjoy a varied tapestry of talent that captures the diversity of the artists who inhabited the club over its various incarnations. 

A packed programme on Saturday takes over St George’s from midday to late night. Starting with a duo double bill of Matthew Bourne & Glen Leach, plus the vocal duo of Julie Tippetts & Maggie Nicols. 

The afternoon concert features Granite to Wind Septet with a stellar line-up including Ben Waghorn, James Gardiner-Bateman, and Kevin Figes – all of whom played on the 2011 recording. The event finishes off with an evening performance by The Paul Dunmall Quartet.
