A rare opportunity to see internationally-acclaimed Cuban violinist Omar Puente perform in a duo format with his long-time pianist and collaborator Al Macsween, featuring music from across Omar's career including tracks from his latest album, 'Best Foot Forward'.

The music on this album is the result of twenty years living in the UK and touring internationally - a fusion of rhythms from Cuba, Brazil, Africa, Caribbean, Jazz, modern UK sound and further afield.

Support is from violinist Max Baillie who has appeared with rappers at the Malian Festival in the Desert, led Bjork’s orchestra in the Royal Albert Hall and accompanied Stevie Wonder in Hyde Park.

Doors are at 6.30pm with the opening act going on around 7.30pm.
