Two of the UK’s most innovative and creative cellists join forces to present an evening of comedy, improvisation and music from around the world. They are joined by guitarist Peter Michaels.

Shirley Smart and Peter Michaels present a programme which takes the listener on an improvised journey weaving together classical music, jazz and world music from North Africa, Middle East, Balkans, and South America as well as original compositions by both artists. They have performed at many venues and festivals in the UK and Europe, and are known for their lively stage chemistry and improvisational virtusosity
“Shirley Smart can be considered one of the best improvising cellists in the UK” The Jazz Mann
“..some of the most inventive use of the cello I’ve heard for some time.” Kind of Jazz

Kate Shortt: Cellist/comedienne and singer songwriter Kate Shortt entertains with her unique musical anarchy, songs and impressions. Join her for company on the other side of this Shortt and Smart journey at Green Note.
“…Prized above rubies, great comedy, excellent songwriting…” Fleece Jazz
“;…Wild cellist, exciting vocals…” The Stage
“…A remarkable cellist…” The Guardian
“… Very funny polished act and a wonderful elastic face..” London Live Radio

The two acts form one half each of a delightfully varied evening with something for everyone ( we hope!!)
