lthough it was cold and wet in Bury last night, those who saw the TG Collective were whipped away to sunnier shores.

You could almost smell the tapas and feel the warm breeze on your face.

Originally a trio, Trio Gitano now has two acoustic guitarists - Sam Slater and Jamie Fekete - who have brought three other musicians with them.

It began with an acoustic Spanish piece played with fiery expression and brightened by Holly Jones' flute. All underpinned by Percy Purseglove on double bass. Then the players invited Louis Robinson to add his violin to the mix.

The young musicians had loads of connection with one another, playing with verve and energy. It was particularly nice to hear the two guitars with no accompaniment for Take 5.

And Salsa Blues and Jazz, these guys played it all, with great aplomb.
