Neil Cowley Trio promise to redefine the description ‘piano trio’ when they perform at Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart on Thursday, October 30 as part of a short Northern Ireland tour.
The trio burst onto the scene in 2006 with an outstanding debut that simply fizzed with energy. Its rip-roaring riffs, hook laden tunes and thrilling climaxes sat side by side with heart shattering musical whisperings and turned the concept of the piano trio on its head.
Dubbed ‘Jazz for Radiohead fans’, it earned the trio a BBC Award for Best Album and a legion of fans. Since then, Neil Cowley Trio have released a further four highly acclaimed studio albums and carved out a reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting bands. Live, their captivating shows have at their core Cowley’s distinct wit and remarkable rapport with his audience.
A dazzling pianist and outstanding composer, classically trained Neil Cowley creates deeply engaging music whose power and sheer emotion touch lovers of all music. He records and performs with his long time compatriots Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass, a band in the true sense of the word - that breathes and listens as one.
This promises to be one of the most exciting concerts of our season, and demand for tickets is sure to be high, so please book well in advance.
Tickets for the concert, which is being presented in association with Walled City Music, are priced at £12, with a £10 concession, and they’re available from reception at Flowerfield Arts Centre. You can also buy your tickets over the phone using your credit or debit card on (028) 7083 1400.
