Leonie Cohen and Tomomi Takahashi

Leonie Cohen Leonie Cohen

Everybody who knows Leonie knows how great she is.  Everybody who has a copy of the Pony album loves it.  She hasn't been playing so much the last couple of years, but she's doing a duet set for us.  Leonie says she's "thrilled to be performing as a duo with bassist Hugh Fraser......... On an evening following superb pianist/composer Tomomi Takahashi who’ll be playing the first set with her ensemble."

Tomomi will be opening the night with her quintet - piano, double bass, sax, violin and euphonium.  She's an improvising musician who works with improvised theatre, and will be mostly playing premieres of original music.  I have a photo, but it's hard to get two photos on this website thingy, so you'll have to show up and meet her in person.
