Touring in April 2014

Swing Driven thing

In this exciting new collaboration between the passionate violinist, Fiona Pears, UK pianist, Ian Tilley and the talented Gypsy-jazz guitar duo La Petite Manouche, audiences will be treated to a thrilling mix of music – from tangos and ballads to gypsy jazz and Irish jigs.

“Banish from your minds all preconceptions of orthodoxy in the world of the violin. Fiona Pears has largely rewritten the script”.
