Sarah Tandy Quintet + Skeltr
YES Pink Room
Sarah Tandy’s music has been shaped by London’s thriving and diverse live music scene. She has swiftly risen to become one of the most in-demand players of her generation, with stints on keys for Jazz Jamaica, Nu Civilisation Orchestra, Camilla George and Nubya Garcia. She is also a member of Ronnie Scott’s House Band.
In this mjf 2019 finale show, she plays music from her new album Infection In The Sentence with her all-star band featuring musicians pooled from London bands such as Ezra Collective, Binker & Moses and Nerija.
Opening the evening, Skeltr’s soaring sax lines, pulsating drum patterns and intuitive samples make for an unstoppable roller coaster of soulful and expansive tunes, fuelled by passion and buzzing with energy. With a self-assured presence and several international festival dates already under their belt, Skeltr are fast becoming the new sound of Manchester – hold on tight…
