Howard Assembly Room
The Howard Assembly Room is temporarily closed during our major Music Works redevelopment, and will be reopening in 2020 with more thrilling music and performance in the heart of Leeds.
This event has passed.
This sublime collaboration between two virtuoso musicians – Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita – delivers a stunning adventure in world-class musicianship.
Following the huge success of their debut release Clychau Dibon back in 2013, their long-awaited second album Soar launches in April 2018.
Drawing on the bardic traditions of both Wales and West Africa, the album takes flight on the wings of the osprey, the magnificent bird of prey recently returned to Wales after centuries of absence, which makes its annual 3,000-mile migration from the coasts of West Africa to the estuaries of Wales.
“This, I suspect, will be remembered as one of the classic concerts of the year”
