This time she teams up with saxophonist Iain Ballamy and pianist Huw Warren, three of the UK’s most celebrated folk and jazz musicians who come together to create mesmerising, lyrical chamber music.

This is only one of two UK dates this summer so not to be missed!

June Tabor rose to fame in the 1970’s working with the likes of Maddy Prior as Silly Sisters, with the Oysterband on the roots-rock classic Freedom and Rain (1990), with harpist Savourna Stevenson and bassist Danny Thompson on Singing the Storm (1996).

She is known as a dark-voiced storyteller who broad repertoire sets the anonymous genius of folk poetry alongside work from both the celebrated and the unsung heroes of modern British writing.

Iain Ballamy is listed in the BBC’s 100 Jazz Legends as one of the UK’s most widely celebrated jazz musicians and composers and pianist Huw Warren’s enticing music has led to collaborations with Maria Pia de Vito, Mark Feldman and Erik Truffaz and who has appeared at the NCEM with The Perfect Houseplants and with the jazz guitarist John Parricelli.
