Capital City Jazz Orchestra with Gareth Lockrane
Special guest soloist Gareth Lockrane
Tuesday 22 May, 8.00pm
Join the Capital City Jazz Orchestra for another exciting night of Big Band music, this time with Stellar Flute player Gareth Lockrane.
Gareth started playing at the age of 10 and after raiding his dad's record collection discovered jazz at 14. Early influences included Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Bill Evans and Stan Getz on the jazz side whilst also being transfixed by the great blues-rock guitarists of the 60s and 70s.
In 1994 he enrolled on the jazz course at the Royal Academy of Music in London where teachers included Stan Sulzmann, Martin Speake, and Eddie Parker and he has gone on to become one of the most respected Jazz musicians of his generation.
As a sideman,Gareth has been involved in many diverse projects and he leads a number of his own groups including his own Big Band who have recently released their first album ‘Fistfight at the Barndance’.
