Jazz Connective: Sara Colman, Riverloam Trio ft. Paul Dunmal and Bowrain

Price: £13

Town Hall Symphony Hall's Jazzlines are proud to host some of the best talent in Jazz music from across Europe, supported by the EU under the Creative Europe Project through Jazz Connective. 

This concert features Birmingham’s Sara Colman, Polish saxophinist Mikolaj Trzaska’s Riverloam trio featuring Paul Dunmall, and Slovenian pianist Bowrain.

Sara Colman

Sara Colman's expressive songwriting blurs musical genres into her own captivating, emotional style.

Working in recent years with leading lights in British music including Laura Mvula, Liane Carroll and Mahalia, her new band now features some of the most exciting musicians from the jazz world, bringing her original writing very much to life.

Inspired by her love of classic songwriting and instinctive improvisational energy, Sara’s musical journey brings her jazz sensibility into roots music territory.  Her profound originals sit alongside stylish arrangements, the folk-tinged worlds of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, contemporary jazz, improvisation and the Americana of Bill Frisell.

Riverloam Trio

Riverloam Trio was created by three of Europe's leading free jazz musicians. It combines Chassidic tradition and modern improvised music. Artists appeal to the magical meaning, common experience and mysticism of Hasidic music. In their work, the listener becomes an integral part of the celebration and participates in it on a par with the musicians. Babcia's Memory project was inspired by melodies and stories, sung and told by their grandmothers. It is a modern tribute to the family tradition. The unique, extremely personal and intimate dialogue of Jewish past and present.


Bowrain (1983, Ljubljana) is a contemporary composer, pianist, and producer. To date, he has released several singles, three albums, and one EP. His previous studio recordings used to be entirely individual, however, the recent album DISTRACTED is a collaboration with Ljubljana based guitarist and producer Mario Babojelić – UM and German drummer Robert Nitschke. Since 2018 he has been a collaborator in South African collective The Brother Moves On.

Piano is my tool, my instrument. There is a reciprocal familiarity that happens when I dive into it. Playing piano for me is more natural than speaking.
