My Iris is the latest ensemble project from saxophonist, BASCA British Composer Award winner and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Trish Clowes. Clowes’ intricate compositions juxtapose startling melodies and ethereal whispers with gnarly lines and earthy grooves. Having completed a highly successful launch tour for the My Iris album (released in January 2017 on Basho Records), the band will be on the road again in the UK and Ireland in January and February 2018 with some new material in the mix. Past appearances include Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Stadthaus Ulm (Germany), EFG London Jazz Festival and broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and Radio Bremen (Germany).
