Glasgow-born and London-based saxophonist, Jonathan Chung leads the well-established Glasshopper Trio. Featuring an unusual line-up of saxophone, guitar (James Kitchman), and drums (Corrie Dick), the music is subtle, evocative, and deeply arresting, with moments of singing cymbals and loop-pedal intricacy that produce an other-worldly atmosphere. Influenced by the free jazz, rock and folk worlds, the band perform Jonathan’s emotionally sophisticated compositions with reverence and abandon, weaving together moments of sonic bliss and euphoric rock-outs.

Focused around improvisation, the trio create original and transportive interpretations from their collaboration, blending seamlessly with one another around a central guiding narrative. Their name denotes their sound; clear, crystalline, and reflective, creating an irridescent mirage of a beautifully surreal world, inspired by our own.

You can continue to support us and the professional musicians who are struggling right now, by donating what you might usually spend on an entry fee or a drink, or any other amount that you wish. Professional musicians and all hospitality/event staff are facing an incredibly difficult time, having seen months of steady work disappear over-night. Any donations would be extremely appreciated to help us to continue to pay our staff through our closure and support our local event staff community in any way that we can.
