The Irish born, multi-award winning vocalist and composer is now based in North West Roscommon, Ireland, having been an integral part of both the New York City and London scenes for many years.

 Her unique, rich sound was described by The Guardian as ‘Tobin’s 24 carat voice’. Her expressive range acknowledges finely acquired jazz, folk and twentieth century classical influences.

 She can be junkyard blues philosopher, snappy beat seductress, a conduit for exquisite zen-like harmonies, or reflective Americana. Her ‘Tower of Song’ repertoire includes Tobin originals, new arrangements of Jazz classics, unique interpretations of Leonard Cohen and Carole King, and her settings of WB Yeats's poetry - which won the Herald Angel Award at the 2014 Edinburgh festival.

 Christine Tobin – vocals, Phil Robson – guitars, Dave Whitford - bass

 Phil Robson: guitar

As well as being one of the leading jazz guitarists in Europe, Phil is also celebrated as an innovative composer. He is the leader of Six Strings and the Beat, Phil Robson Trio and co leader of Partisans. He also has a trio with U.S. drum legend Billy Hart and bassist James Genus and is a longtime member of the BBC Big Band who he has written and arranged for. 

Dave Whitford: double bass

From Cornwall, this superb double bass player has become one of London’s most in demand musicians for U.K. and visiting international bands.
