Born & raised in Poland, Basia Bartz has established herself as a prolific player on the London music scene since relocating to the UK fifteen years ago.

As a violinist, she has been a member of a myriad of bands and projects across genres, spanning folk, Americana, experimental, jazz, pop, and even dance.

Over the years, a great number of singer-songwriters have called upon the violinist to help embellish their songs with her sensitive ear and versatile playing.

Inspired by the musicians around her, as well as her own personal evolution, Basia began singing and composing original songs in 2019. Continuing her long love for folk, she began a collaboration with Ben Walker, who recorded and produced a number of violin-led folk songs, two of which have already been released.

In this intimate evening, Basia will take us on an eclectic journey leading through the many musical worlds she has so far created and inhabited.

One of Bartz’s guests for this evening will be Shem Fillmore, who has played with various bands in a range of styles, but his main project now is his own exploration and reinvention of English traditional music.

He plays violin, mandolin and tonight will dip into Hindustani classical influences with his sarangi, a bowed lute from south Asia.

Whilst guitarist and vocalist Omar Rios Melendez explores numerous acoustic and electric styles of music including flamenco, Arabian, Gypsy jazz, chillout, reggae, blues, bossa nova, Latin, rock and fusion.

Line up:

Basia Bartz – voice, violin, piano, electronics

Shem Fillmore – sarangi, mandolin

Omar Rios Melendez – guitar
