Live music with a difference at venue near Llangollen

This Saturday evening Black Park Chapel – just down the road from Llangollen – is hosting something different for those who enjoy live music.

It’s a performance by acclaimed professional jazz musicians Faith Brackenbury and Toni Bianco.

Their touring project, entitled Visio Improvisus, is an exploration of the music of St. Hildegard von Bingen, fusing it with their contemporary jazz and improvisation backgrounds.

Layers of violin/viola lines and drones create a base to ethereal Latin vocal monophonic scores, accompanied by rolling drums and percussion.

This tour is promoting their double album of the music, Wayward Mystic, and is aiming to encourage communities to re-engage with live music performance after these years of social isolation and loneliness. 

Bridget Drukker of Black Park said: “I went to the Anoushka Shankar concert at the Llangollen Eisteddfod - incredible, full house and standing ovation. One of the best concerts that I have ever been to.

“Faith Brackenbury is influenced by Anoushka's father, the famous Ravi Shankar, and I think some of those who went to the Eisteddfod would enjoy this on Saturday.”
