Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues are thrilled to welcome Olivia Moore and Unfurl to the St Mary’s Centre for an enchanting afternoon concert.

Olivia Moore is one of the UK's most innovative and creative violinists. She performs with her band Unfurl, a quintet drawing on diverse influences of Jazz, Indian and Arabic rhythms.

They have appeared at most of the main UK Jazz festivals including the Manchester, Marsden, Marlborough, Brecon and London Jazz Festivals and at jazz clubs and theatre venues across the country.

With a finely tuned balance of tight arrangements and more expansive improvisatory sections, the group achieves a fluidity of playing that gives each performance a spontaneity and freshness of its own.

Apart from being influenced by the jazz greats and various Indian legendary musicians and singers such as Hariprasad Chaurasia, Kala Ramnath and Zakir Hussain, Unfurl’s music is influenced by John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The band like to create rhythmic interest in their music, writing many of the tunes in 7/4 and are keen on cross-rhythms and syncopation.
