The Troubles

The Troubles
Over a long residency in New Zealand's capital city of Wellington, The Troubles developed and honed their quasi-anarchistic brand of meticulously composed music. From the coarse to the sublime, the emotive to the absurd, their music is inventive, passionate, honest, and wholly life affirming. They are led by John Rae, a drummer and composer hailing from Edinburgh, who has been living in New Zealand for the past eight years and whose last appearance at the Edinburgh Festival earned him a prestigious Herald Angel Award. John is joined by saxophonist Lucien Johnson and bassist Patrick Bleakley. Shows: The Troubles Thursday 24 July 8.30pm The Jazz Bar The Commonwealth Jazz Orchestra (feat.
