Performers

Jess Gillam Saxophone
The Jess Gillam Ensemble

Jess Gillam is less a classical saxophonist than a musical force of nature. Critics enthuse about her “hot licks, lustrous tone and winning passion” (The Times) but radio listeners across the UK know her as a musical explorer – an artist with an unrivalled gift for taking music of any genre and transforming it into an adventure. Expect delightful discoveries, sensational playing and effortless charisma as she assembles an ensemble of equally lively musical friends to share the music they love. Whether it’s Piazzolla or Meredith Monk; Philip Glass or music of the Venetian baroque, expect to be dazzled, charmed and thoroughly entertained.
