    One show only with a special promotion! With each ticket purchase you’ll receive an exclusive download of Aimua Eghobamien’s upcoming "Black Sessions" live album free of charge. Just one opportunity this spring to see the latest quartet project led by singer-songwriter Aimua Eghobamien with musical partners bassists Jerome Davies and Oli Hayhurst and violinist Richard Jones. Voice, violin and two double basses; it’s an unusual ensemble and invites speculative combinations of sound through original compositions and arrangements of pop, rock, folk, classical and jazz standards. Call it alternative; call it avant-garde, it is a sound that won’t soon be forgotten. [Indigo Sessions] “…a fine mix of songs subtly delivered.” —Stephen Graham Marlbank [Jerome Davies] "Astute arrangements" —The Sunday Times [Aimua Eghobamien] "He is a true, thoroughly exciting, original." —JazzTimes [Oli Hayhurst] "Hayhurst's probing and technically virtuoso playing was for me the highlight of the evening." —Daily Telegraph [Richard Jones] "A fiddle player who manages to make his instrument sound sexy" —NME

    Indigo Sessions is the latest quartet project led by singer-songwriter Aimua Eghobamien with musical partners bassists Jerome Davies and Oli Hayhurst and violinist Richard Jones. With each member contributing his own style through original compositions and arrangements of pop, rock, folk, classical and jazz standards this innovative project truly showcases the collaborative efforts of this ensemble. Voice, violin and two double basses; it’s an unusual ensemble and invites speculative combinations of sound and ‘role reversal’—voice providing percussion, basses duelling contrapuntally. It was only until the four had spent some time together playing that they realised how rich the rewards could be. Call it alternative; call it avant-garde, it is a sound that won’t soon be forgotten. http://facebook.com/indigosessions ● http://twitter.com/indigosessions
