"IMAGINE THE impressionistic electric-jazz moodiness and glistening keyboard textures of Miles Davis’s In A Silent Way seamlessly wrapped around Celtic folk melodies." That was how The Guardian described jazz 'supergroup' Dinosaur.
Dinosaur, led by Laura Jurd, and regarded as one of Britain's most vital and creative new ensembles, play the Station House Theatre, Clifden, on Monday February 27 as part of the Clifden Arts Festival annual programme of events 2017.
Switching between synth and trumpet, award-winning trumpet player, composer, bandleader and BBC New Generation Artist, Laura Jurd, has been heralded as, “one of the strongest, most interesting new trumpet voices in jazz”. Her compositions are delivered with precision and panache by her bandmates Elliot Galvin (keyboards ), Conor Chaplin (bass ), and Corrie Dick (drums ). Their album, Together, As One, was released to critical acclaim last year.
