After successful streamed concerts at the Boileroom during 2020/21 when jazz clubs were closed, Guildford Jazz have gone on to lead an Arts Council backed initiative to support great young UK jazz artists with the “BEAT” series of streamed concerts. Free to Members of BJazz as a founding collaborator, this first gig features saxophonist Camilla George and a preceding support act, The Joe Garland Band. The event is free to watch for Members but we ask you please to donate to support the artists. All donations will be passed directly to the artists.
The concert is being broadcast on YouTube and best watched with headphones or through good speakers. During the live broadcast there will be chat facility if you would like to say hello. The performance will also be available for 1 week after the event so if you have any problems watching it please get in touch and we’ll try and help.
Support act 7.30pm * Main act 8.15pm
Visionary saxophonist Camilla George kicks off the BEAT series with a heady mix of afrobeat, hip hop and jazz. Expect an up-tempo feast of stunning jazz horns, polyrhythmic drums, guitar and keys and Camilla’s sax flying effortlessly between lush afrobeat and jazz melodies.
