Art Terry and the Black Bohemians

Sunday 17th September

Join us in our community garden for an evening of music, food and good vibes headlined by Art Terry and the Black Bohemians.


Art Terry and the Black Bohemians play their own unique and delirious brand of arthouse funk and folk music exploring Black politics, sexuality and religion, through a lyrical fusion [gumbo] of African American folklore and hauntological funk. A singer and pianist, Art underpins deeply personal lyrics with dense melodic textures to create conceptual Black music. A prolific songwriter, he created a song a day during 52 days of lockdown, a project which evolved into the Self Isolation Songbook.

Brought up in the gospel tradition, Art evokes the sacred figure of the robed and commanding preacher alongside the profane swagger and bravado of the street-hustling savant in his live performances. He will be performing live at Glengall Gardens with his ten-piece ensemble the Black Bohemians whose intuitive and sensitive musicianship lends itself to these funky folk compositions.
