Off Stage with Troyka
In association with Lancaster Jazz Festival
Take part in an exciting creative music workshop with the members of jazz trio Troyka.
Troyka are Chris Montague (guitars and loops), Joshua Blackmore (drums) and Kit Downes (organ), three young musicians based in London whose intense live shows have seen them hotly tipped to follow in the footsteps of Polar Bear and Portico Quartet and become the next young band to explode from the capital’s fertile jazz scene. A multitextured trio with a febrile imagination where no role is pre-defined, their music twists and mutates in an ongoing dialogue inspired by a shared love of Aphex Twin, the angular world of iconclastic New York saxophonist Tim Berne and the blues-jazz-rock groove of legendary Steely Dan and Billy Cobham guitarist Wayne Krantz.
- "The focus is on how to pursue your own voice on your chosen instrument, and how to improve core skills all musicians need at any level. We will look at developing strong practice routines which improve our time feel, improvisational capability, aural awareness and ensemble playing skills.” Chris Montague,Troyka guitarist
