Gwilym Simcock is a British pianist and composer working in both jazz and classical music, and often blurring the boundaries of the two. He is joined for this concert by guitar wizard Mike Walker and the virtuosic harmonica player from the Netherlands, Hermine Deurloo.

“A rare gift” is how the Daily Telegraph recently described the artistry that Gwilym Simcock brings to his solo piano playing. We are delighted to welcome Gwilym, arguably Britain’s best contemporary jazz pianist to our festival. He was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2011. Finding his jazz feet in Bill Bruford’s Earthwork and Tim Garland’s Lighthouse Trio before becoming a founding member of the superb The Impossible Gentleman group.

Gwilyn has won many awards in both the jazz and classical fields, including the BBC New Arrival Award, and has played with some of contemporary jazz’s greatest artists including Pat Metheny, Dave Holland, Kenny Wheeler and Don Weller. “Jazz does not come any better than this” is how one critic reviewed his latest album, Near and Now.

At our concert he will be joined by Salford born Mike Walker, described by John Fordham as “one of the most powerful jazz guitarists in Europe.” Completing this stellar line up is Hermine Deurloo, a jazz chromatic harmonica player from Amsterdam. Do not miss this – a real treat!

"A formidable pianist, with a feeling for the way harmony can create architecture as well as momentary colours – a rare gift”
