The Devonshire Square’s “Art for Love” Christmas Festival will end On Tuesday 19th December with a highly anticipated live concert by worldwide acclaimed saxophonist Aaron Liddard and his band “The Argonauts”, an international collective of musicians from UK, Cuba, Brazil, Switzerland, Italy and Germany.
Aaron Liddard has shared the stage with a number of world- class artists including Prince, Amy Winehouse, Bob Geldof, Steve Cropper, Jools Holland and Carlos Acosta. He has appeared on TV in Len Goodman’s Big Band Bonanza documentary and the feature film Legend alongside Tom Hardy and Duffy.
“Aaron and the Argonauts” will present to the Devonshire Square’s audience a repertoire that combines Jazz classics with their beautiful, passionate and highly original music, an exciting fusion of jazz, bossa nova, funk, alt rock, gospel, drum ‘n’ bass and esoteric free improvisation.
Liddard will be accompanied by Giulia Joni Marelli (Italy - Voice), Filipe Montierro (Barzil - Guitar), Jimmy Norden (UK - Drums), Eric Young (UK - Percussion) and Paul Michael (UK- Bass).
The FREE attendance concert will take place at 5pm in the atmospheric surroundings of Devonshire Square’s Western Courtyard, decorated with beautiful Christmas trees and a sparkling artistic installation of golden “twilight trees” - sculptured cherry trees covered in illuminated blossoms - created by British artist Susie Reid Thomas.
