DANNI NICHOLLS

Danni Nicholls is a classic songwriter. Rooted in Americana, she "slips effortlessly between smoky soul, folk-pop and heart-wrenching alt-country" (Q magazine) all in a rich voice which has been described as 'one in a million' (Maverick Music Magazine). Touring to promote her new album 'Mockingbird Lane' recorded in Nashville with some of America's finest musicians, we’re excited to have Danni back at The Bear Club after her packed out gig in May.

FRI 27 NOVEMBER

PARTISANS

Partisans are widely acknowledged as the godfathers of the new wave of British post-jazz and improv, and have outlived many of the bands that have come since their formation. BBC Radio 3 asserts they are “one of the most exciting all star experimental groups in jazz today”.

With years of touring around the globe and a cult following in their native UK, where they have played every conceivable venue from backwater pubs to the largest concert halls and festivals, Partisans have released four albums to date: their self-titled debut (1997, EFZ), Sourpuss (2000, Babel), Max (2005, Babel) and By Proxy (2009, Babel). But it's Swamp that sees the band completely blow open their already eclectic and unpredictable palette, taking their music to new heights as a result of their near 20 years together.

This heavyweight jazz quartet continues to carve
its own niche, with an eclectic jazz mix."
