Peter Johnstone Trio
Entry Requirements: 18+
The Peter Johnstone Trio has been largely dormant for several years whilst the leader became heavily involved in other projects including the Tommy Smith Quartet and the Scottish national Jazz Orchestra. Most recently Peter Johnstone was also the recipient of the Gleneagles Scholarship, created to celebrate and support an exceptional performance student at the Royal Conservatoire.
Now reformed, the trio plays newly composed original material by the leader with influences from mainstream and contemporary jazz, classical and world music styles. Strong melodic themes form the basis of the compositions whilst the rhythmic language alternates between being wildly adventurous and subtly introspective, whilst always firmly referencing the tradition. The trio features the wonderful talents of Andrew Robb on double bass and Stephen Henderson on drums.
