A double bill performance celebrating girls and women in jazz featuring Girl Plays Jazz Project and Yeoja.

Girl Plays Jazz

Girl Plays Jazz Project presents a showcase performance by girls aged 8 to 16, following on from their introduction to jazz improvisation workshop during the day.

Girl Plays Jazz Project was set up in 2017 to introduce girls and young women to jazz improvisation across a range of styles, including swing, funk, blues, free jazz and world music – through workshops, masterclasses, and performance and development opportunities. The Project is open to all girls who love music, and is led by the jazz flutist Maddy Shaw and the Girl Plays Jazz Project house band. Girl Plays Jazz Project is the first project of its kind in the UK and is at the vanguard of developing the next generation of female jazz musicians.

Yeoja, meaning woman in Korean, is a female-fronted grunge powerhouse. Inspired by the bolshy attitude of nineties and early noughties grunge and punk bands, the heart-wrenching power of American soul and the uncontrollable urge to dance of K-Pop, Yeoja give their audience a throwback to their teenage bedroom moshing years and a fast forward to the future with their distinctive unorthodox sound.

Featuring:
Hannah Dilkes and Rosie Turton on trombone
PJ Bennett on guitar
Hanna Mbuya on tuba
Pete Hill on drums
