noisenight134: bjarte eike and barokksolistene at The Jazz Cafe London

About the Event

Devised by Bjarte Eike and performed by Barokksolistene, The Alehouse Sessions recreate the sounds and the atmosphere of an English 17th century tavern.

The Jazz Cafe:
With a history spanning over 25 years, The Jazz Cafe has established itself as one of London's most iconic live music venues. Its intimate stage has witnessed the performances of renowned jazz and soul artists, including Bobby Womack, Amy Winehouse, Adele, D'Angelo, and many others. Originally an old branch of Barclays, the venue exudes a unique charm and character that adds to the overall experience.

the music:
The Alehouse Sessions – curated and devised by Bjarte Eike – is an ever changing and evolving insight into the music of the English 17th century tavern. It gives audiences a window into this tumultuous period through Purcell overtures, English sea shanties, and Scandinavian folk songs thrown in for good measure.

This diversion from the traditional concert model is what is at the heart of the Sessions. Through the medium of these well‐loved tunes, a story of the period is interwoven into the music making creating a unique environment between audience and performer. Using their own arrangement of the tunes, these ‘Alehouse Boys’ combine this unique format with humour, an unrivalled virtuosity and flare for improvisation.
