LONDON Con Cellar Bar
42 St Pancras Way
The Con Cellar Bar, one of London's underground jazz gems for over a decade, plays host to new projects from each of its residents - Alice Leggett, George Crowley and Sam Jesson.
The Con Cellar has always been a rich breeding ground for young musicians presenting new work, and - in this spirit - presents new music and projects from each of its current curators.

George Crowley - saxophone / electronics
A new solo set from George Crowley, whose improvised saxophone / pedals / synth / laptop performances weave together disparate elements of minimalism, loops, warm drones, the percussive side of the saxophone, sunrise ambience and more, with Crowley's native tenor sax as the glue to bind it all together. www.georgecrowleymusic.com
