Tom Gamble: CD + London dates

Rating:

Classically-trained guitarist Tom Gamble recently played a solo set at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden, going down a storm with the assembled literary crowd at the Playerist Comedy Night. He’s soon to leave these shores to further his studies abroad so catch him while you can. Meanwhile, music lovers will be more than satisfied with Mr Gamble’s fantastic début Jazz CD Rooftop Music. Recently graduating with a First from Trinity Laban Conservatoire in Greenwich, the maestro leads the Tom Gamble Ensemble at the South Bank Centre on August 8.

It’s now reached its third launch event – Thursday October 17, 8pm – at the Poetry Café in Covent Garden’s Betterton Street. No ‘Better’ route to an early weekend! Apologies, the jokes will be better than this and the Basement is a delightful spot to relax; one of those hidden treasures of the city. As always the quality of work is astounding.
