The Bicycle Thieves

Thursday 21 April 2011 17:30-18:30

Institut Français d’Ecosse

13 Randolph Crescent Edinburgh EH3 7TT

The Bicycle Thieves music project is an Edinburgh-based international jazz collective with a line-up of talented banditi from across the globe (and Fife):

Elena Zini (vocals/glockenspiel)
Alastair Cole (double bass)
Gregor Shanks (piano)
Jamie Pitts (percussion)
Tim Du Feu (Fiddle)
Moreno Coco (Accordion)
and an array of gifted guest performers.

Drawing on a catalogue of songs hand-picked from the sun-soaked terraces of Italy, Spain and France, as well as performing lounge-accented covers from the vaults of jazz and alternative music, the Thieves’ “sophisticated café jazz brings a touch of summer wherever they play.”

Listen to their music here.
