Supporting Georgie Fame are Kairos 4Tet the MOBO award-winning jazz quartet featuring Emilia Mårtensson and Alice Zawadzki.

After a three year hiatus Kairos 4Tet return to present new material recently recorded for their 4th album, delving deeper in to the art of song. Regarded as one of a kind - Kairos 4Tet bridge the gap between classic and contemporary; the jazz orbit and folk lineage; with ferocious grooves, searching improvisations and melodies that linger long after the music stops.

The band play the distinctive compositions of saxophonist Adam Waldmann, who has been described as "a young master in the making" by Time Out and a "precociously talented composer and player" by AllAboutJazz.com. As well as Parliamentary Jazz Vocalist of the Year award winner Emilia Mårtensson, the band features Alice Zawadzki who The Guardian call "a genuine original" on vocals and violin, Jasper Høiby on bass (Phronesis, Shai Maestro), Rich Spaven on drums and Will Barry on piano who Chucho Valdés (Irakere) describes as "sensitive and fluid - a beautiful sound".

The band’s compositions are open and accessible, but there’s no compromise when it comes to intuitive, intelligent playing and adventurous arrangements.
