Sat May 16 19:30:00 2020

We’re hoping to reschedule this in the autumn

LE CAFE PARISIEN is a musical and cultural journey through the streets, cafés and terraces of Europe.

Expect to hear Hot Club Swing, classical themes, adventures into Romani and Celtic music, and vintage songs, all delivered with a fresh new twist.

The highly talented Andy Lawrenson Trio blends style, flair, musical dexterity, and plenty of interaction with their audience. Their show is a veritable melting pot of astoundingly good musicianship and novel arrangements, which are all delivered with a sense of warmth, and fun. This all adds up to make for a cracking night’s entertainment which will warm the hearts!
