Archipelago

Sunday 26 July, 8pm
Live music from The Globe! … But you can only watch it on a screen, for now.

On Sunday 26 July the genre-defying trio Achipelago will be performing at The Globe. The gig will be streamed live and you can watch it again at any time. The Globe will remain closed to the public so please do not try to attend the gig in person. We are planning to allow audiences in The Globe as soon as we can accommodate them safely and within government guidelines.

Archipelago take audiences on a journey that is exciting, genre-defying and unforgettable, fusing jazz with alt-rock, blues folk melodies and otherworldly improvisations.

Fronted by composer/saxophonist/clarinetist/vocalist Faye MacCalman and completed by John Pope (Bass/FX) and Christian Alderson (Drums/Percussion), Archipelago formed out of the North East of England’s fertile new music scene in 2016 after crossing paths in ‘mutant funeral jazz big band’ The Midnight Doctors.

Taking influence from artists ranging from Joni Mitchell to Don Cherry, Archipelago move between instruments and electronic effects creating illusions of several musicians, before peeling back to their raw trio form.

Supported by BBC Introducing and selected as a highlight from Latitude Festival 2019 for Tom Robinson’s BBC6 Music show, they were described as a ‘truly remarkable unit’ by NARC Magazine.
‘Vibe all of its own. Listen!’ – Steve Lawson.
‘A shape-shifting sound’ – Kevin Le Gendre.

So that the musicians can get paid, we ask you to pay a small ‘entrance fee’, which we recommend should be £5 per person. If you are able to pay a bit more this will be really welcome at this time when gig income for musicians has almost completely stopped.
