VELVET REVOLUTION plus BECCA WILKINS/TOM HARRIS in support
Saturday 17th November, 8pm, Hexagon Theatre, mac, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham B12 9QH
TDE Promotions first heard this trio in a Dutch church last summer; the combination of tenor saxophone, vibes and violin produced some beautiful music, and so I am delighted to be able to bring them to Birmingham. It’s a French British trio with Daniel Erdmann on saxophone, Theo Ceccaldi on violin and Jim Hart on vibes.
