Young Pilgrims Feat Lyint & Space Ghetto on Friday 16th November 2018
From Glasgow's Commonwealth Games celebrations to the Paris Jazz Festival, Young Pilgrims have entertained crowds across Europe with their rock influenced brass band sound.
Originating in Birmingham this 9 piece band, began as a commission from the Jazzlines department of Town Hall Symphony Hall, Birmingham. Led by charismatic Scottish trombonist Richard Foote with members gathered from all over the UK, their music is about anything from imaginary French detective cartoons to all the Little Things that get in the way.
Their brass heavy sound takes influence from the great New Orleans Second Line tradition and fuses it with contemporary rock grooves, simple yet complex melodies and plenty of improvisation to keep things unexpected.
They have performed at a range of festivals and venues including Love Supreme Festival, a three day residency at the London Jazz Festival, Birmingham's Symphony Hall and Lunar Festival, winning fans for their energetic and engaging performances.
In their hometown they've made a name for themselves with their monthly Pilgrimage shows which began as a monthly residency for the band to develop their music. Now a busy and important night for the scene, each event begins with a lively set from the Pilgrims after which they present guest acts from across the country in the cities legendary Hare & Hounds venue.
2019 see’s the release of the their second album on Birmingham's Stoney Lane Records, a rock heavy, jazz influenced follow up to ‘Little Things’.
