Really excited about playing with Tara Minton on Thursday 6th of April at The Royal Albert Hall in the Elgar Room for her album launch of the “Tides of Love”, fantastic album on which I had the honour to record guitar last year.
“The Tides of Love” is based on a motif of ocean tides, with themes of love, loneliness, strength and hope woven throughout.
Here’s where you can buy tickets to the show:

A little about Tara:
Tara Minton is a jazz harpist and vocalist from Melbourne, Australia.
Her style mixes elements of jazz, folk and soul together, with a focus on storytelling through lyrics and music. She is often compared to Joni Mitchell and Ella Fitzgerald and draws inspiration from harpist Dorothy Ashby.
Tara and her band regularly perform at festivals and jazz clubs, and run workshops in jazz harp and improvisation. Tara is also the only harpist to have performed on the iconic London Eye, and was chosen to honour the great Amy Winehouse at the unveiling of her statue in Camden Market.
