Click here to purchase your tickets

Dining from 6pm to 8pm with music starting at 8pm. Please book with the restaurant for pre-concert dining 01983 86733 or thecafe@thegarlicfarm.co.uk

Described by Guitar Techniques' John Wheatcroft as "the magic balance of talent and drive" Filippo Dall'Asta is an Italian Gypsy jazz guitarist, composer, bandleader and arranger, mixing the sounds of Gypsy jazz with traditional Indian music to forge his own style of progressive guitar playing.

He has toured and recorded with artists such as Mozes Rosenberg, Lollo Meier, Giacomo Smith, John Wheatcroft, Tara Minton (Björk) and many more. His touring resume covers Germany, India, Italy, France, Spain, England, Malta and Russia, with notable appearances at The Royal Albert Hall, the House of Parliament, the Tower of London, the Union Chapel, and many festivals in France and Italy.

"Filippo Dall'Asta's "Mediterasian" is a great fusion of Gypsy jazz and Indian music. The sounds of the two traditions blend perfectly with each other creating a fresh, original and innovative debut album. Highly recommended!" - Mozes Rosenberg

"There is no doubt that this literally flawless and exceptional feat is probably one of the best, most beautiful albums I have reviewed in my three odd years with Bucketlist." - Jordan Hodgins of Bucket List Music Reviews (Canada)

"One of the best instrumental albums of 2018" - La Music Critic Awards (USA)

An evening not to be missed.
