The Fergus Quill Trio are a band whose obsession lies in 20th, 21st, and 22nd century improvised music, from Jelly Roll Morton and Sun Ra to Derek Bailey and the Boredoms.
They will be playing music from their album ‘Zoop Zoop’ and their new album’
¡Blamo! An album that pays homage to the Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s and 1970s and in particular, the soundtrack music written by Italian composer maestro Ennio Morricone. The tracks merge film theme/soundtrack-style music with jazz improvisation.
Fergus is an in-demand Composer, Bandleader, and Bassist. Founder of large avant garde ensemble ‘Ferg’s Imaginary Big Band’ He has recently played with the likes of Hermeto Pascoal, Orphy Robinson and Emma Rawciz. He was recently selected to join the only British ensemble commissioned to perform new work by John Zorn as part of his Bagatelles series led by Sam Eastmond.

SUPPORT – Dyslexic Savant
Dyslexic Savant performs both as a piano and guitar trio. They fuse thematic and film-esque jazz ideas with modern rhythmic and textural interplay. They like to emphasise the fun of improvising with each other in the music, as well as the severity and silliness of their roles in it. They also hit bottom of snare drum.
