Shirley Smart is recognised as one of the UK’s most versatile and creative cellists, being equally at home and well versed in jazz and Middle Eastern music as well as classical music. One of the most creative cellists on the music scene she has worked with many leading jazz and world music groups, including Antonio Forcione, Mulato Astatke, Gilad Atzmon, Neil Cowley, Julian Ferraretto and Robert Mitchell.

He is a 2017 BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, a 2014 City of Music Foundation Artist and has released three albums on Edition Recordsas a band-leader and composer which have been extremely well-received in newspapers and magazines across Europe.
