POSTONED owing to Covid-19 - BBC New Generation Artist Rob Luft’s joyous, dynamic and vivacious music brings echoes of West African high-life, English folk music and indie rock. His debut album received glowing reviews in the jazz media and nominations for a string of awards followed. Many will remember his magical performances at the libraries last year in duet with singer Elina Duni and this visit with his own quartet is set to be another memorable highlight of the season.

"Guitar virtuoso makes enticingly vivacious debut" The Guardian
"...a singular talent, a ﬂuent improviser and a composer of catchy, earthy, infectiously upbeat tunes. There are echoes of west African high-life, English folk, indie rock and various strands of contemporary jazz, but Luft’s sound is joyously original, robust and in-your-face..." The Irish Times
“So young and so talented!” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
“With Riser, Luft has produced a debut album of remarkable originality, strong compositions and he’s assisted by a formidable quartet of musicians whose natural sensibilities and talents only serve to enhance the project.” All About Jazz
