Braid Ensemble at Hundred Years Gallery

Following on from its highly acclaimed Purcell Room debut last year, The Braid Ensemble – focussing entirely on the work of composer David Braid – makes its first appearance at Hundred Years Gallery.

The players, Elliott Devivo (clarinet); Gerard Cousins (guitar); David Braid (electric guitar/mandolin); Rossitza Stoycheva (piano), are each world class virtuosi who bring their own unique musical angle to this remarkable group.

A result of strong influences ranging from Renaissance lute music to The Smiths and Sibelius – retaining a not quite pin down-able intimate familiarity – this is a music the like of which you have never heard; combining the immediacy of our time, a faint air of old school, valve-powered melancholy and an idealistic projection into the future.
