Rich Meehan Trio

Thurs 21 July, doors 7.30pm; music from 8pm

Richard Meehan is a composer and pianist working in a broad spectrum of styles and genres. Collaborating with drummer Paul Glover, bassist James Newman and electronics wiz Jon Bierman, his latest project is Rich Meehan Trio

After 2 years of writing and rehearsals the plans are set for the release of the debut EP ‘Suite Antique’, with 3 supporting singles in the Spring/Summer of 2022.

This show is to mark the occasion and celebrate the release. 

The five-movement work fuses a classical sensibility with a modern jazz style and notes of contemporary electronica. Movements such as the Carillon and Toccata showcase what the piano can do as an instrument, while movements such as the Prelude and Gymnopedie are all about atmosphere. The end result is at once familiar and strange, progressive, yet approachable and is some of the composer’s most personal work. 

Mixed by acclaimed, Mercury-nominated producer Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Graham Coxon, Tom Robinson etc.) The EP exudes professionalism and continues to showcase a jazz trio with limitless potential. An exciting first look at a Jazz trio full of ideas and a unique multi-genre sound, ‘Suite Antique’ is released 21th July 2022.
