"An unqualified masterpiece." – Jazzwise
"A revelatory interpreter of Yeats." – Paul Muldoon
London based Irish chanteuse Christine Tobin returns to the John Field Room following last year's capacity show for Tapestry Unravelled, her exquisite reading of Carole King’s landmark album. Here she brings us Sailing to Byzantium, newly minted settings of Yeats poems that UK critics have been hailing as her most mature and revealing work yet. Long time collaborator and leading guitarist Phil Robson joins her in a quintet that also features leading Irish jazz and classical musicians.
