The Filthy Six is an exciting and fun soul-jazz group from London, with high-calibre musicians who have also played with artists such as Mumford and Sons, Amy Winehouse, and Tom Jones.

The leader of the Filthy Six, Nick Etwell, is an acclaimed trumpetist and composer who has spent many years in the tour band of world-famous Mumford and Sons. He is also a sought-after session musician and has worked with big names such as Foo Fighters, Tom Jones, and Ed Harcourt.

Saxophonist Frank Walden is also from London. He has worked with Tom Jones for some ten years, played in Amy Winehouse’s band for her entire career, and done a world tour with Mark Ronson’s band.

The third Londoner of the group is guitarist James Fenn, who used to tour Europe as a member of the James Taylor Quartet for a good while.

The group tours the world with three different rhythm sections, and in Tampere Hall, they will play with a top Finnish rhythm section lead by Kari Paavola. Their February tour is the third time the band will be seen in Finland, and they are going to play material from their albums released by the legendary British label Acid Jazz. The label is such a prominent name in London’s soul-jazz circles that people have started calling nearly all soul-funk-jazz music coming from London “acid jazz”.

The Filthy Six offers entertaining, energetic music that fuses jazz-style improvisation, superb arrangements, and stunning funk groove.

Attention! There is an area suitable for drinking beverages during the show. The area is located in the stalls, bench rows 12–17. Age limit 18+. You may only purchase beverages before the show or during the intermission. The sales counters are located in the lobby.
