SoundCellar

SoundCellar presents the very best in jazz, world music and much more, from its base in Poole, Dorset, UK. Starting in 2010 in a local cellar bar, SoundCellar is now not about any one space and we continue to present high quality artists live, here in Poole (please check each listing for specific venue details). We also livestream the majority of our events, plus provide a video link for all ticket buyers for a set period afterwards, meaning those who cannot attend in person, can still experience superb live music. 

Visiting SoundCellar star performers have included LARRY GOLDINGS (James Taylor/John Scofield); BECCA STEVENS (David Crosby/Snarky Puppy); BENNY RIETVELD (Santana/Miles Davis); JASON REBELLO (Sting/Jeff Beck); JO LAWRY (Sting); US contemporary jazz giants DAVID BINNEY, MATTHEW STEVENS, WALTER SMITH III, ARI HOENIG, BEN WENDEL, WILL VINSON, ALLISON MILLER, COLIN STRANAHAN, GLENN ZALESKI, PATRICK CORNELIUS, ALICYN YAFFEE; Dutch jazz guitar icon JESSE VAN RULLER; Brooklyn based folk duo ROBINSON & ROHE; in addition to top UK based musicians THEO TRAVIS (Dave Gilmour/Robert Fripp/Steven Wilson); PAUL STACEY (Oasis/Steven Wilson/The Black Crowes); GILAD ATZMON (Ian Dury/Pink Floyd); JEREMY STACEY (King Crimson/Sheryl Crow/Noel Gallagher); OLI ROCKBERGER (Laura Mvula/Randy Brecker); along with a host of other top UK based artists – LAURA JURD, ALICE ZAWADZKI, EMMA RAWICZ, ROB LUFT, PHIL ROBSON, JIM MULLEN, IVO NEAME, ALAN BARNES, JULIAN SIEGEL, LIAM NOBLE, MARTIN SPEAKE, KIT DOWNES, ROGER BEAUJOLAIS, NIGEL PRICE, DAVE NEWTON, PHIL DONKIN, PAUL BOOTH, MIKE OUTRAM, MICHAEL JANISCH, TRISH CLOWES, HENRY LOWTHER, JOHN LAW, DYLAN HOWE, NICOLAS MEIER, ASAF SIRKIS, DAVE O’HIGGINS, GARETH LOCKRANE, OLANDO LE FLEMING and many more.
