What's going on? Kick back to the sweet sound of Jazz on Thursday 9th December...
We’re so excited to be able to announce the guest for our FarGo Jazz Jam (Christmas Special) on 9th of December, multi award-winning alto-saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch. Soweto’s been at the very top of our wish list since the beginning and we’re feeling so blessed that he said yes!
Soweto has been nominated for a Mercury Prize, and was the recipient of two UMA Awards and a MOBO for Best Jazz Act. His skills as a hip hop MC and producer have led to prestigious support slots for the likes of Mos Def, KRS One, Dwele and TY. More recently, he has also collaborated with legendary D&B producer Goldie. Plus, he’s based just up the road in Brum and is even a fan of FarGo (a big factor in us being able to pull this off!)
Our brilliant FarGo House Band for December consists of bandleader Aaron Moloney (Drums), Wayne Matthews (Bass), Tom Lindsay (Keys) plus a second special guest, Alex Clark (Saxophonist and BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year finalist 2020).
As usual, FarGo Jazz Jam is free to watch and free to jam with. (Full backline is provided). We know demand at Factory (FarGo) is going to be especially high for this event, so tables will book up fast but we’ll be adding some extra capacity for walk-ins.
