The Elliot Galvin Trio The multi-award winning Elliot Galvin Trio return to the Blue Lamp following last year’s superb concert. The Trio are embarking on a UK wide tour of their latest album ‘The Influencing Machine’, and were insisting on ncluding Scotland’s No 1 club in the tour. Being hailed as “audaciously accomplished” by John Fordham (the Guardian) and “one of the strongest debuts from a UK artist” by Jez Nelson (BBC Radio 3, Jazz on 3), this promises to be an unmissable and enchanting performance. Elliot Galvin is one of the rising stars of UK jazz. A superbly gifted composer and pianist, whose maverick imagination and magpie like ability to blend a disparate world of influences into his own unique musical vision has seen him compared to Django Bates although in truth he sounds like no one except himself. Gleefully balancing technical virtuosity, a healthy dose of fun and playfulness with moments of captivating beauty; The Elliot Galvin Trio enthusiastically explore the sonic capabilities and traditions of their instruments through Elliot’s masterful compositions. With Elliot are Corrie Dick on drums and Tom McCredie on bass.
