"wicked brass band jazz & devastating dance floor marching tunes” Fatcity Records
Tongues of Fire are a riot of reeds, brass and percussion, making a ‘joyful noise’ for dreaming, dancing and celebration. This unique band summon up free jazz sprits, laying down powerful acoustic grooves, performing beautiful versions of English traditional music and drawing on street band sounds.The band is led by saxophonist Tim Hill, who combines his love of Ornette Coleman and improvisation with on-going research into outdoor music and street band traditions.
Tim is especially fascinated by our love of noise and how it’s used in celebration. Playing in the heart of strange theatrical beasts, surrounded by fire or accompanying aerialists and giant puppets, Tongues of Fire often perform outdoors in theatre shows and landscape celebrations. The band have worked with the Galway theatre company Macnas and put on shows in a huge variety of settings, from festivals like Salisbury Festival, Durham Brass Festival and WOMAD, events for Cirque Bijou and Oxford Story Museum, in spaces like The Barbican and for Oxford Contemporary Music.
