Francis Tulip Quartet to Light Up the Globe

This Sunday (August 5) at the Globe there promises to be a reprise of last year's memorable concert by the Francis Tulip Quartet. One year on, Francis, Joel, Michael and Matt take a break from their studies to play a couple of sets of GASbook (perhaps Darn That Dream will be in the setlist), contemporary numbers and one or two original compositions. 
If last week's concert at the Lit & Phil is anything to go by Newcastle Jazz Co-op's Railway Street premises could well be standing room only. A huge crowd at the independent library on Westgate Road listened to a full hour's worth of music from the young quartet, insisting on an encore such was the standard of musicianship (see photo). 
Sunday's gig is advertised as a 7:30 start, it's £6 at the door with students admitted for a bargain £3. Catch the Francis Tulip Quartet at the Globe before the guys once again head off across the globe in pursuit of their musical dreams.
