Event details

This multi-style influenced quintet perform for the first time in Turner Sims

Strong melodies, jazz harmonies and a potent sense of nostalgia are some of the words associated with the music of Last Summer’s Tealights. Part classical, part folk, part pop, part hymnal, the music is a peculiar hotchpotch of shared influences.


The idea for LST was conceived through a series of saxophone/marimba duets emerging during a winter spent in Scotland, which were eventually expanded under more southern skies.


LST is a relatively new project bringing together experienced players from a diverse range of musical backgrounds including jazz, classical, flamenco and middle‐eastern. They have played with artists such as Yo‐Yo Ma, Alec Dankworth and Pete Tong at venues including Royal Albert Hall, Barbican and Southbank Centres and Glastonbury Festival.
