With its magical combination of jazz, folk and soul influences, Astral Weeks is widely regarded as one of the most influential recordings of the 20th century. This special concert celebrates both Van Morrison’s masterpiece and his 75th birthday.

Multi-instrumentalist Orphy Robinson brings together some of the UK’s top jazz players to reinterpret the transcendental arrangements of this 20th century classic. They’ll be joined by vocalists Sahra Guhre, winner of the Musicians Company Young Jazz Musician of the Year Award 2019, and Joe Cang.

Orphy Robinson is an award winning multi- Instrumentalist, specialising on tuned percussion, and one of the few UK artists to have been signed to Blue Note. Throughout a 40-year career, he’s been nominated for and won numerous industry awards, including Live Performance of the Year at the 2017 Jazz FM awards alongside two nominations in 2019 for Jazz Innovation and Live Performance of the Year. In 2018, he was awarded an MBE for services to music.
