In January 2014 Barry recorded two trio albums in Systems Two studios, Brooklyn. One with Chris Cheek and Gerald Cleaver (called “Great News”) and the other with Drew Gress and Tom Rainey (called “Almost There”). Great news is released on Moletone in early 2015 follwed by a UK and internationlal tour with Chris and Gerald.

PLUS, TONIGHT BARRY WILL BE JOINED BY AN EXTRA EXTRA SPECIAL SURPRISE GUEST. You’ll have to come along to find out who it is, but trust us when we say that this really isn’t one to miss.
Elliot Galvin Trio
The Elliot Galvin Trio was formed in 2012 and sees the meeting of three like- minded creatives. Exploring the possibilities of the traditional piano trio line-up with a sense of playful experimentation, the group play original material written by Elliot. The band effortlessly juggle a number of musical worlds as the realms of classical, jazz, popular and art music all make an appearance. This is held together with a free-spirited, improv sensibility which at times pushes the sonic capabilities and traditions of their instruments to another level. In 2014 they won the European Young Musician of The Year Award in Germany. They never fail to deliver a performance which perfectly balances technical virtuosity, a healthy dose of fun and playfulness as well as moments of captivating beauty.
Their Debut Album ‘Dreamland’ is available on the Chaos Collective label.
