Open air live music is back at the Botanic Garden with Cambridge Summer Music. Set on the Garden's Main Lawn with the Bee Borders as a stunning backdrop, visitors can enjoy an array of live music with family and friends, on a (hopefully) warm and balmy evening, every Wednesday through July. The music begins at 6.15pm, lasting approx one hour. Visitors are welcome to stay on and enjoy the Garden until 8pm when the gates will close.
No tickets are required but normal Garden admission applies. There will be a retiring collection at the end of each performance towards the musicians' performance fees. The Garden Café will be serving food and drink and visitors are also welcome to picnic.
Making a welcome return to Sounds Green is the four-piece band Afrosamba. Fronted by Brazilian born Pilo Adami, the group encompasses Afro Brazilian Jazz, Samba and Bossa Nova. Joined by seasoned musicians from Mozambique, Brazil and the UK, influences range from João Gilberto’s harmonic complexities and Airto Moreira’s experimental rhythms to the laid back music of Jorge Ben Jor.
