Acres is a modern quartet that puts joy and familiarity at the forefront of music, playing original pieces and sharing the history of Jazz’s development over the 20th and 21st century.

The quartet’s music is written by each member, leading to many trails of inspiration found from piece to piece. Themes of connectivity, home, wilderness, and celebration of life are behind many compositions.

With humorous performance, expect playful sounds, witty back-and-forth within the music, and lots of improvisation!

Nils Kavanagh (Piano), Emma Craig (Saxophone), Sam Green (Drums), and Cameron Saint (Double Bass), enjoy exploring the landscape of the British Isles.
