Live Music with The Peter Lemer Trio - Saturday 2nd September from 7.45pm (Doors 6.30pm)

We are very excited to have The Peter Lemer Trio performing at The Gallery.

Although much better known as a consummate sideman than a leader, British-born pianist Peter Lemer bridges the gap between jazz and progressive rock, playing and recording extensively in both categories. Born in London in 1942, Lemer studied piano at the Royal Academy of Music, and later with Paul Bley and Jaki Byard.

Through the '60s, Lemer was a regular fixture on the new jazz scene in London, appearing in lineups beside giants of British jazz like Elton Dean, Dick Heckstall-Smith and he toured and recorded with Barbara Thompson for many years, while leading his own groups as well. He only released one album as a leader: Local Colour (produced by future Jimi Hendrix collaborator Eddie Kramer) on New York's legendary ESP-Disk label in 1966.
Unlike many jazz folks, however, Lemer slipped easily into the fusion and progressive scenes of the '70s. Lemer played and recorded with Ginger Baker, Mike Oldfield and guitarist Phil Miller.

Peter will perform alogside Andy Hamill who has played bass with 4 Hero, Laura Mvula, Eska, Natacha Atlas, Annie Lennox, Kylie Minogue, Rumer, Lou Rhodes, Nitin Sawhney, Annie Ross, Cara Dillon, Martin & Eliza Carthy, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Tim Minchin, Tim Vine, Lee Mack, John Hegley and Harry Hill. His album ‘Bee for Bass’ featured singers Omar, Carleen Anderson, Mark Murphy, Anita Wardell & Rebecca Hollweg.

Lastly completing the trio we have Paul Robinson, a master on the drums. Paul has previously played with Mose Allison, Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney, The Proclaimers, Jan Hammer, Eric Bibb, Emily Sande and the magnificent Nina Simone!

This is going to be an amazing evening of music with three talented and respected musicians.

Doors open from 6.30pm. Reservations will be held until 8.30pm and then released to walk ins. Please refer to terms and conditions for full details.
