Sounds Green – Arun Ghosh Quintet

Wed 10 July

Botanic Garden

Clarinettist Arun Ghosh brings his trademark IndoJazz to Sounds Green. Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured in Manchester and living in London, Arun Ghosh’s musical style represents his rich cultural heritage. The British-Asian clarinettist and composer is a leading light on the UK jazz scene, captivating audiences and critics with his passionate and dynamic performance style, eloquent musical expression and a healthy dose of rock ‘n’ roll spirit.

Set on the Garden’s Main Lawn, visitors can relax and enjoy informal and fun live music with family and friends, on a (hopefully) warm and balmy evening.

Music begins at 6.30pm, lasting approximately one hour.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy the Garden until 8.30pm when the gates will close.

Picnics are welcome. Food and drink will be provided by Guerilla Kitchen and The Garden Café. Ice cream by Jack’s Gelato.

Bring a rug or picnic chair and relax in beautiful surroundings to some stunning musical sounds!
