LION Salt Works will welcome an ‘eclectic and exciting’ jazz band to Northwich later this month.

Morecombe Bay-based Deep Cabaret will be taking to the stage at the museum on Saturday, October 19 to perform a range of different hits.

The six-piece ensemble will be the first of Lion Salt Works’ new music events and will continue to enhance the museum’s reputation on the folk circuit for featuring established, award-winning acts as well as newcomers.

Deep Cabaret say its tunes are rooted in folk, jazz, improv, African and left-field pop and are played on hurdies, bagpipes, bass clarinets and cellos.

The music, described by audiences as ‘wonderful and invigorating’ is beguilingly accompanied by overtone singing of Desert Blue improv and noir drone songs, giving the ensemble both a romantic and edgy sound.

Deep Cabaret spent 2018 on its 'Slow Tour' of the North, supported by Jazz North and was awarded Arts Council England funding at the start of this year to record an album at Real World studios with producer Justin Adams.

Speaking about the event, Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Wellbeing at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “It is not often that so many different musical sources and instruments are drawn on to create an evening of music.

“A night with the beguiling music of ‘Deep Cabaret’ promises to be a musical night to remember and I think the music will be enhanced by the historic setting of the Lion Salt Works Museum’s Thompson Suite.”

The Deep Cabaret set will take place at 8pm on Saturday, October 19.
