Four gigs in two days!
Robin will be performing four times in 24 hours this weekend (25th-26th September). The first performance is with the Jehane Markham Trio (JMT) featuring for the first time Natalie Rozario on cello as part of the Ham & High Festival. The group will perform their original piece, ‘Vladivostok to Moscow’, which presents Jehane’s original poetry to musical compositions depicting a journey on the famous Russian railway. On Saturday evening Robin will perform with Vil Hais at Shanghai Blues in Holborn.
On Sunday, Robin performs with jazz vocalist Sarah Ellen-Hughes at the famous RAC Club on Pall Mall, as part of the venue’s Sunday lunch jazz series (members only). Then, later that day Robin performs two solo sets at the renowned London jazz venue, The Archduke, under the arches between Waterloo station and the Royal Festival Hall.
