A session of sizzling, hot traditional jazz is promised when Peter Rudeforth, star trumpeter from the Chris Barber band, joins John Petters Dixie Five at St John's Arts Centre (St John's Walk, Market St, Old Harlow CM17 0AJ) on Thursday 27th April @ 8pm.
Peter Rudeforth was born in Aberystwyth, Wales on 20th March 1963. He began playing the trumpet at the age of seven. Whilst in school he developed his interest in many types of music, playing for brass bands, orchestras, shows and forming his own jazz band. At the age of sixteen he was in demand as concerto soloist, broadcasting live on radio and television. At this time he also made a commercial recording of a Vivaldi Concerto.
A long and colourful career as one of the country's top trumpeters has seen Peter perform with many of the name jazz outfits, including Acker Bilk's Paramount Jazzband, Kenny Ball's Jazzmen and commencing in 2008, his current tenure with the famous Chris Barber band.
Regular favourite, Tim Huskisson returns on clarinet alongside piano professor Martin Litton, recently heard on Radio 3 and Harlow bass ace, Keith Donald.
With the leader's explosive drumming, this session is sure to raise the roof on the Old St John's Church where the session takes place.
The concert starts at 8PM and admission is £10
