Andy Sheppard Bump 5250 – POSTPONED

Part of Bristol International Jazz & Blues Festival

Due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, this event is postponed. The organisers are working to find a new date for the concert to take place. All ticket holders are being contacted and asked to retain their ticket until a new date is announced.

We thank all customers for their ongoing patience and support during this time.

For more information, please visit our Coronavirus FAQs page.

Andy Sheppard is one of the few British Jazz musicians to have the rare honour of working with the most important contemporary American Big Band leaders/composers Gil Evans, George Russel and Carla Bley.

It follows that Sheppard has often been inspired to create his own Big Band projects, most recently a commission by the Bergen Big Band for which he wrote Bump 5250. Featuring the cream of South West musicians, this will be the UK premiere of a big band suite that takes you through the ups and downs of falling in love.

This is a Bristol International Jazz and Blues show at St George’s Bristol, Great George St, Bristol BS1 5RR
