Catherine Sikora & Gavin Prior Duo
& solo set
The night will begin with a solo set by Catherine Sikora. She will also perform in a duo with Gavin Prior (Guitar / Electronics) and in a trio with Colm O’Hara (Trombone) and David Lacey (Drums).
Saxophonist, improviser and composer Catherine Sikora started her musical journey in West Cork, Ireland, where she was born and raised. Self taught to begin with, she moved to New York City in 2000 to study and play with great improvisers.
Sikora has toured Europe with Eric Mingus and with Elliott Sharp, and works regularly in avant jazz/improvised circles with a wide group of musicians, including Eric Mingus, Han-Earl Park, Joe Giardullo, Karl Berger, Matt Lavelle, Francois Grillot, Ras Moshe, Art Bailey and Jeremy Bacon, among others. She has worked with some notable NYC conducted improvising ensembles including Karl Berger’s Stone Workshop Orchestra and Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber. She is currently focusing on solo performance and on writing new material for ensemble work.
Sikora is a free-blowing player’s player with a spectacular harmonic imagination and an evolved understanding of the tonal palette of the saxophone.
