Babelfish on tour and more exciting things!


I hope you all had a fantastic summer!  News from me sadly means we’re nearing the end of it, though Autumn is my favourite season, and with it exciting things ahead! 


Babelfish have embarked on a 20-date tour of the UK with our next stop next week in London at Pizza Express Jazz Club Wednesday 12th September, book your tickets here! Thanks to LondonJazz for their interview and for previewing the tour, where you can find a little bit more about the band and when we’re playing near you.


Other thrilling projects and workshops taking place in the coming months listed below, including a couple of special appearances at the London Jazz Festival- Hope to see many of you along the way!


Much love,
Brigitte x
