Classically trained, jazz trained, gig-hardened violin virtuoso Ben Holderhas sold out on two occasions at Burford Jazz so grab your tickets early to avoid disappointment! Ben has performed throughout Europe and America to much critical acclaim. Audiences love his humour and energy on stage and critics are amazed by his pin-point articulation and the sheer mesmerising speed and beauty of his solo work. Julian Stringle (https://www.julianmarcstringle.com) - another child prodigy - is a multi-award winning clarinettist and saxophonist who has ‘sparred’ with Ben on many occasions with sparkling results, the two together are simply breathtaking! With ace guitarist Jez Cook and bassist Paul Jefferies keeping the tempos and rhythms in pounding along you’ll be assured of an utterly charming and entertaining concert.
