All roads lead to Tokyo and Marsden (the twinkling gem of the Yorkshire Pennines, Marsden that is).

Marsden Jazz Festival
M&F will present Tåpp (UK) and the Great Harry Hillman (CH) for our night at Marsden.

Rebekah Reid (violin) and Polly Virr (cello) are an edgy duo who use their Tåpp formation to utilise both the mesmerising and unsettling qualities of strings and electronics to find their own personal voice. (See video on right.) ‘The Harrys’ as they are known, are an equally engaging quartet who respect melody, as well as, rocking out. They take bass clarinet/sax with drums, electric guitar and bass to imagine jazz through lenses coloured by alt rock, prog rock and beautiful song-writing. This is a delicious double bill to be caught if you can.

Full details and Tickets.


The dynamic Match&Fuse Zürich team are stretching their hand out to East Asia with a few shows matching Swiss and Japanese artists, as well links to a tour in Korea and China.
