Project Jam Sandwich is a dynamic collaboration of instruments and genres, adding their stamp to folk music from all over the globe. This impressive line-up of violin, cello, guitar, double bass and percussion includes BBC Young Musician of the Year Category Finalists, Royal Over-Seas League winners and international concerto soloists who met whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK. Their explosive live performance and captivating collection of influences have immediately situated Project Jam Sandwich as rising stars in their field. Ranging from the music of Bulgaria to South Africa to Scotland, they concoct their own charismatic arrangements with exhilarating improvisation, scorching rhythms and beautiful melody. Performance highlights include a BBC Radio 3 broadcast of their BBC Prom at the Albert Hall, BBC Radio 3’s In Tune Programme and a string of the UK’s most prestigious music festivals including: Celtic Connections, Fishguard, Oundle and Ulverston International Music Festivals, Swaledale Festival (Top 10 UK Festivals – The Guardian), Greenbelt, Aldeburgh and Musicport Festivals and Ireby Folk Festival. They were also featured artists in the 2015 RNCM Day of Strings, Percussion and Chamber Music Festivals and were selected as part of the highly competitive audition process to play their own Bridgewater Hall Concert as part of the Manchester Midday Concert Series.
