Directions

The Grammy-winning Canadian pianist and entertainer is known as much for the intimate piano touch of best-selling albums 'Solo Piano I' and 'Solo Piano II' as for his showmanship and composition for award-winning stars. Gonzo, as he is known to close collaborators, aims to be a man of his time, approaching the piano with classical and jazz training but with the attitude of a rapper.

Chilly Gonzales holds the Guinness world record for the longest solo concert at over 27 hours. He performs and writes songs with Jarvis Cocker, Feist and Drake, among others. 

This show sees the return of Chilly Gonzales to the stage with an intimate hour of pieces from the 'Solo Piano' album cycle, after which he is joined by Stella Le Page on cello and Joe Flory on drums to perform hits and hidden surprises from the rest of his repertoire, interspersed with his unique playful explanations about how music works.

★★★★ ‘the most diverting piano lesson you’re ever likely to receive’

Chilly has chosen his opening act for the evening Sarah McCoy, who combines jazz, blues, poetry and pop. Listen to her brand new album Blood Siren here.
