Chilly Gonzales

(Canada) + support Sarah McCoy

'Chilly by name, warm and wonderful by nature.' ★★★★★ The Guardian

The Grammy-winning Canadian pianist and entertainer is known as much for the intimate piano touch of best-selling albums Solo Piano I and Solo Piano II as for his showmanship and composition for award-winning stars. Gonzo, as he is known to close collaborators, aims to be a man of his time, approaching the piano with classical and jazz training but with the attitude of a rapper. He has performed and written songs with the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Feist and Drake and holds the Guinness world record for the longest solo concert (running for more than 27 hours). 

Beginning with an intimate hour of pieces from the Solo Piano album cycle, he’ll then be joined by cellist Stella Le Page and drummer Joe Flory for further hits and some hidden surprises.
