“One Voice, One Cello & A Mad Belgian”

The crazy cello man is back once more at Luna Lounge- joined by Very Special Guest Jennifer El Gammal on soprano saxophone!

Rupert Gillett is a cello player/singer/songwriter/improviser. He delves into jazz, rock, folk, pop and more on the cello, while at the same time singing songs about robots, space invaders, bogey men and other serious issues of the day. Rupert also plays with a variety of ensembles such as Dai & the Ramblers and the London Klezmer Quartet, and pops up now and again on BBC radio and television.

Musician, writer, comedian, sociologist, tour guide and magician, Jennifer El Gammal, aka “A Mad Belgian”, was born in a tiny land named Belgium. Since then, she has been travelling around Europe on her fold-up bicycle with her soprano saxophone and melodeon. Master improviser and constructor of strange and wonderful musical sculptures, Jennifer’s jazzy and melodic excursions need to be heard….
