Unfurl at Jazz at the Priestly

Unfurl’s music expands across con­tin­ents, com­bin­ing Indian ragas, fla­menco and Arabic music with impro­visa­tion to create an ori­gin­al sound ran­ging from the dra­mat­ic to the sublime.

This group has a very per­son­al sound that is truly unique…each member brings a vast array of global influ­ences to the table, but this is not world music or ethnic music; it is simply music — a fusion in the truest sense. Enrich­ing and full of life.” Chris Ack­er­ley the​soun​dofnow​.com

Unfurl, under Olivi­a’s gentle but determ­ined vision, has carved out an invit­ing, per­son­al sound that draws the listen­er in with its search­ing melod­ies and tum­bling rhythms. More than simply a fusion of jazz, Indian and Arabic aes­thet­ics, Unfurl’s music is a genu­ine expres­sion, show­ing how varied interests and inspir­a­tions can blend to result in a great­er whole: one that trans­ports the attent­ive listen­er to a place by turns del­ic­ate, mys­ter­i­ous and moving.”
Steve Mead, Artist­ic Dir­ect­or, Manchester Jazz Festival.

Unfurl have been enthu­si­ast­ic­ally received at numer­ous Jazz fest­ivals across the coun­try, includ­ing Manchester, Marsden, Marl­bor­ough, Brecon, Gateshead and the London Jazz Fest­iv­al as well as in numer­ous clubs and theatre venues across the country.

Olivia Moore is the band leader and inspir­a­tion behind Unfurl. She is an exper­i­enced per­former, bring­ing her energy and sens­it­iv­ity to the band, ded­ic­ated to Jazz and Indian clas­sic­al violin though she also draws her influ­ence from fla­menco, gypsy and folk music.

The other band mem­bers are: 

Jim Faulkner- Elec­tric Guitar
Gavin Barras- Double Bass
John Ball- Tabla and Indian Santoor
Adam Warne- Egyp­tian Percussion
