Space is the Place: The River

Thursday, January 17, music starts 21:00, €8 / students €5

What would happen when folk and poetry form the breeding ground for very good jazz musicians? One of the most beautiful (Amsterdam-based) jazz bands of the past years arises, that’s what. The River creates a scene where folk songs, improvised music, and poetry flow together. Near the end of 2015, The River released their first album, THE SWIM SESSIONS, recorded live at the Bimhuis
