The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra return for their fourteenth annual festival of improvisation!

The Saturday evening program features two huge names in the global free improvisation sphere: Joëlle Léandre and Alexander Hawkins. Léandre returns to work the ensemble after a gloriously euphoric encounter at the Glasgow Jazz Festival in 2019, while Hawkins visits gliding high on the current of his most recent album, Togetherness Music, which has been described as “[a] masterpiece that can stand next to the best works of Mitchell, Braxton or Parker".
