About the Event
Bringing together musicians from bands like Suede, Gorillaz and Florence + The Machine, Penguin Cafe is a melting pot of influences and serious talent. Founded in 2009 by composer Arthur Jeffes paying homage to his father’s Penguin Cafe Orchestra of the seventies, this modern revamp continues to transcend the divisions between popular and classical music. Utilizing many different instruments and influences, Arthur creates new genre defying work that has a worldwide appeal, one that is warm, immediately likeable and strangely familiar.
Penguin Cafe are back in the studio creating the band’s forthcoming fifth studio album, due to release in 2019, so Bath Festivals audience could be the first to hear some of their new music at the Pavilion this May.
