JOHN LAW / IAIN BALLAMY quartet (Robert Mitchell’s True Think postponed)

5 January 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Unfortunately due to illness, with more than one member of the band stricken at the last minute, Robert Mitchell’s True Think have had to postpone their gig with us tonight.

However, we are extremely fortunate that one of SoundCellar’s favourite musicians, pianist JOHN LAW has been able to step into the breach at very short notice. Not only that, but we are delighted that he will bring with him a true UK jazz legend, award winning saxophonist IAIN BALLAMY to perform for us, as part of a Quartet.

As most of you will know, Iain has been at the forefront of the jazz world for many years, having played with a veritable ‘who’s who’ of international musicians, as well as being a member of such acclaimed ensembles as Loose Tubes, Bill Bruford’s Earthworks, Quercus and others.

We therefore hope that you will still want to come tonight for an evening of very high quality jazz and if so, your Robert Mitchell ticket will be valid for John and Iain’s performance.

If however you wish to cancel altogether, simply let us know via email (soundcellarmusic@yahoo.co.uk) and we will refund your ticket in full.

We wish the members of Robert’s band all the best for a speedy recovery and look forward to getting them back to SoundCellar soon. In the meantime we sincerely hope you make it to The Grasshopper as planned this evening for what will undoubtedly be a fantastic gig.

This gig will take place at The Grasshopper, 139 – 141 Bournemouth Rd, Poole BH14 9HT
