Nik Svarc – guitar/loops
Steve Hanley – drums
Martin Longhawn – organ/keys
Formed in 2012, Svarc Hanley Longhawn are a collaborative band performing original music with influences from classic organ trios and current jazz musicians alike. The music is written as a group with an emphasis on both written material and extended improvisation.
“Leeds guitarist Nik Svarc, drummer–percussionist Steve Hanley and keyboardist Martin Longhawn join the dots between jazz–rock and Hammond funk, discovering an interesting angle for an old-school sound mixed with some hyper-catchy hooks and grooves.”
Followed a masterclass for University of Hull students (2.30 - 4.30 pm). Observers welcome.
Free admission – but booking is essential.
