About the event

Bassist & composer Alison Rayner’s award-winning quintet combine richly nuanced compositions, rhythmic interplay and folk-infused melodies; this, along with their love of improvisation, creates a strong sense of narrative and cinematic quality.

ARQ plays ‘songs without words’ and are lauded for their vibrant, communicative performances.
