Three Not To Be Missed Gigs @ Lincoln Drill Hall!

Check out these three upcoming gigs at Lincoln Drill Hall. Full details at http://www.lincolndrillhall.com/music 

Wednesday 27 April - 7.30pm
Vocal Ensemble of Africa
Six singers from six countries combine a multiple of influences to create music of astounding power. Passionate harmonies, rich melodies and vocal textures fused together by six singers backed by bass, drums and guitar. Tickets: £12.50 (£10 concessions)

Friday 29 April - 8pm
The Safires with The Claire Robinson Band
The Safires are currently touring their new album 'Epic in the Ordinary' which was described by the musician Nitin Sawhney as ‘perfect for all seasons’. The Safires offer the rich vocals of Bex Mather, atmospheric beats of human beatboxer Jason Singh, finger-picked guitar melodies by Kirk McElhinney, and solid basslines from Plan B's co-producer, David McEwan.
The Claire Robinson Band are part-based in Lincoln and their music offers beautiful lyrics with refreshingly raw vocals - a haunting sound that you can't help but fall in love with!
Tickets: £10 on the day (£8 advance)

 Friday 6 May - 8pm
New Jazz 5 present
Nicolas Meier Group featuring Dave O’Higgins
Swiss guitar maestro Nicholas Meier, now resident in the UK, is a dazzling yet sensitive guitarist as happy with flamenco and Latin as he is in Western jazz. Nicolas has had a long association with saxophonist Gilad Atzmon but for tonight’s gig  we are delighted to welcome back to Lincoln one of our favourite saxophonists, Dave O’Higgins, who has also featured on Meier Group recordings.
Tickets: £14 (£12 concessions / £7 students)
