OUROBOROS PRESENTS Alex Hitchcock Quintet


Alex Hitchcock Quintet

£7 in advance / £10 on the day


Award-winning saxophonist Alex Hitchcock returns to York, with his powerhouse quintet that combines a compelling, adventurous ear for melody with virtuosic improvising. A breakthrough year in 2018 saw performances at the Umbria Jazz Festival, Love Supreme Festival and Ronnie Scott's, alongside a UK tour of their acclaimed debut EP, Live at the London and Cambridge Jazz Festivals. John Fordham in Jazzwise recognised the EP as 'an impressive calling card for a band with a bright future'.

The quintet features five of the most creative rising stars of the UK's jazz scene, who have already made their mark as sidemen with an impressive list of jazz luminaries ranging from Jasper Hoiby through Chris Potter to Elliot Galvin.

Tickets available from the Great Yorkshire Fringe website.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
