Sarah Gillespie at the Guildhall Lichfield

‘The War on Trevor’ is a narrative piece of music which depicts the plights of a luckless London lad who repeatedly gets mistaken for a terrorist. The piece combines musical interludes on guitar, accordion, double bass, cello, drums and clarinet with song sections. The Sarah Gillespie Quartet again features the internationally renowned Gilad Atzmon on saxophone. 


Sarah Gillespie - singer, musician, composer, poet, painter and political writer - is an artist-extraordinaire and artist-par excellence in the widest possible sense (in addition to her musical and artistic talents she has a first class degree in Film & Literature and an MA in Politics & Philosophy from Goldsmiths University!) 


Described by Rock’n'Reel as ‘a bracingly eclectic mix of Beat poetry with jazz, folk and Middle Eastern elements’ Sarah’s music is a sonic reflection of the contemporary London street, a melting-pot mix of urban-folk stamped with her trademark lyricism that knits everyday banter with raw poetry. The Quartet which is completed by Enzo Zirilli on drums and Ben Bastin on double bass, have previously released 2 critically acclaimed albums "Stalking Juliet" (2009) and "In the Current Climate" (2011). 


Tickets are priced at £14/ £13 concessions/ £12 members/ £7 students and are available from the Lichfield Arts Box Office, Donegal House, Bore Street, WS13 6LU (tel: 01543 262223) or online at
