John Blek & The Broken Strings

July 1 @ 8:30 pm 10:00 pm

John Blek & The Broken Strings will be embarking on their first tour of Europe in early 2024. But
before that they will play a short run of shows in June/July ’23. The trio consists of Irish
songwriter John Blek, Dresden based cellist Moritz Brümmer and Leipzig based viola player
Filip Sommer.

The group met in July of 2022 for the first time while on an artist in residence programme in the
Saxony countryside just outside Dresden. Blek had been commissioned to write a suite of songs
by the Free State of Saxony and record them at Castle Studios, Röhrsdorf, DE. Brümmer and
Sommer were also working on this session and the trio gelled to great effect. Working together
in an inspired and fluid way.

It was the blend of their traditional classical training and their improvisational skills that
impressed John and led him to invite Brümmer and Sommer to join him on tour.
There is a sense of freedom and joy in the playing of this group. The rise and fall of ensemble
string playing mixed with the fingerpicking guitar style and emotive lyricism of Blek’s songs. True
synergy is achieved when they perform together.
