Zoe Rahman has firmly established herself on the contemporary jazz scene. A vibrant and highly individual pianist / composer, her style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical background, British / Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste. Known for her powerful technique, wide-ranging imagination and exuberant performance, she has become a highly sought-after musician, working most recently with the likes of George Mraz, Courtney Pine and Jerry Dammers Spatial AKA Orchestra. Her 2006 album, Melting Pot, was nominated for the Nationwide Mercury Prize alongside the likes of Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Arctic Monkeys and Muse and it also won 'Jazz Album of the Year' at the UK's first Parliamentary Jazz Awards. While her powerful group recording, Kindred Spirits, won a MOBO Award.
 
For this very special concert Zoe will perform new works from her sixth studio album 'Dreamland' which is also her first as a solo musician.  

This concert is an all ages show and is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
 
Presented with Jazz North East and The Lit and Phil Lunchtime Jazz Series.
