Project Blackbird plus Jennifer Bell and Wilson Walker - City Arts - Nottingham - Nottingham

Project Blackbird is a visionary collective of five East Midlands-based musicians: vocalist Ming Nagel (USA), guitarist Alan Roberts, drummer Styx, bassist Jamie Varley, and multi-instrumentalist Jon Read, former trumpet player for The Specials. As a fan suggests, ”Imagine a party at Ronnie Scott’s where Sade, Björk, Jeff Beck, and David Byrne meet Portishead and then go for a late night curry to exchange ideas…sublime”.Jennifer Bell is a songwriter heavily influenced by traditional folk songs and early music. Her melodies are very singable and the lyrics intelligent and imaginative, sometimes with a macabre twist… Now in a performing and recording partnership with Wilson Walker, who adds some very creative fiddle harmonies.
