Ishmael Ensemble + support

— Rough Trade Bristol
Local jazz heroes return...
price: Earlybird £8.72 incl. booking fee General £10.90 incl.


With a sound that is rooted in jazz Ishmael Ensemble combine brass, beats and a “swirling blizzard of electronics” (Clash) to create mesmerising soundscapes. The brainchild of multi-instrumentalist & producer Pete Cunningham a.k.a. Ishmael, the band have quickly caught the attention of influential tastemakers such as Giles Peterson, Tom Robinson and just about everyone else. Their “rich and diverse sonic palette” (XLR8R) has helped them to create a unique sound and become ones to watch in the UK Jazz scene. We can’t wait to see the Bristol-based jazz collective play a hometown show at Rough Trade this May.

Age 14+ (Under 18’s to be accompanied by an adult)

This is a standing Colston Hall Presents show at Rough Trade Bristol, 3 New Bridewell, Nelson Street, Bristol BS1 2QD
