Peckham Levels grassroots venue Ghost Notes has revealed it'll be closing its doors at the end of February, despite having only opened in 2017.
Ghost Notes has been a vital venue to the emerging London jazz scene since its doors opened in December 2017.
Since its opening, the venue has welcomed performances from the likes of Sampha, Kate Tempest, Loyle Carner, Tom Misch, Damon Albarn, Ezra Collective, Nubya Garcia, Oscar Jerome, and Poppy Ajudha.
Revealing news of the closing on their socials, they reveal, "We’ve watched as the venue became a hub for a community of musicians making some of the most exciting music coming out of the UK, or indeed out of anywhere. Jazz in London, especially South London, is doing special things, and we’re really proud to be a part of it. We’re working on some stand-alone projects during the rest of the year and will be establishing Ghost Notes outside of a physical space, so be sure that this is by no means the end. Rather, it’s just a change of scene."
Speaking to Resident Advisor, co-owner booker Russell Porter explains, "We want this final run of shows to serve as a both a celebration and summary of all the incredible music we’ve been blessed with for the past twelve months. It’s by no means the end of Ghost Notes, rather the end of this specific chapter. We’re already working some exciting projects for the summer, and are looking forwards to seeing what happens next."
