BLACKsitter at Cactushound Bar St.Leonards on Sea

First images of BLACKsitter doing their warm up show on 24th March 2019 at Cactushound Bar in St.Leonards on Sea. Setting the standard for the shows to come this was particularly special as it was attended by many of the locals. Aram Zarikian, responsible for the show and the documentation on this night even managed to source a double bass for Gina Schwarz with just a few hours notice. A full multi-track recording of the concert it currently being revised and mixed, we hope to have various sound bits for you very soon.

Doors open at 7:30

second set at 9pm

For our first evening we are very happy to have the Viennese Trio Blacksitter consisting of Gina Schwarz on double bass, Judith Schwarz on drums and Primus Sitter on guitar.

BLACKsitter brings together three strong,articulate voices of Austria’s Jazz scene.
The band represents the broad scope and variety of that lively scene, with each of the members descending from a different ethnic background,
thus developing distinct, individual sounds and compositional styles.
In BLACKsitter, innovation meets and interacts with tradition.
The creative exchange of the three musical concepts and approaches at times challenge each other, yet overall result in an enrichment of each individual style.

Support act is the London based duo Maria-Chiara Argirò on piano and Jamie Leeming on guitar.

A meeting of kindred spirits, the music of pianist Maria Chiara Argirò and guitarist Jamie Leeming is a dialogue between two unique artists. Their repertoire spans their core influences, which include jazz, latin, classical and folk music, along with brand new compositions written for their upcoming
