Mike Piggott – Violin
21st October 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Entrance £10, non members £12
A visit from Mike is always a delight; his broad approach to playing jazz encompasses a wide range of musical styles from the influences of Stefane Grappelli, Stuff Smith & Joe Venuti to bebop & beyond. Mike displays a remarkable command of his instrument allied to a natural ability to entertain and contagious enthusiasm. Quotes: ‘Master of the Jazz violin’ – Jazz UK, ‘One of the best jazz fiddle players anywhere’- New York Jazz Times. There are not many opportunities to witness a top class jazz violinist, this is one that should not be missed. Playing with Mike will be Bill Yeomans – Saxes and Flute, Art Walters – Piano, Dominic Bentham – Bass and John Jarvis – Drums.
