Summerhall is thrilled to be able to launch its 2012 Festival programme with a unique performance by a very special artist. Archie Shepp – jazz saxophonist, writer, radical – will be performing a rare intimate set in the Dissection Room, accompanied by the exciting talent of Tom McClung on piano.

This concert also serves as a launch for Belgian visual artist Jean-Pierre Muller’s 7×7 project at Summerhall, which will be present throughout the month as the 7x7th Street installation. Another of those major figures involved, Robert Wyatt, will also be present on the evening, and Archie will be playing both his and Robert’s contributions to the 7×7 series.
