Ben Holder Quartet
wall2wall Jazz Festival
Time / Date
Saturday 1 September 2018
- Melville Theatre: Pen-y-Pound, Abergavenny, NP7 5UD
The Ben Holder Quartet is a stellar line-up of incredible musicians, blending an energetic mix of traditional jazz and swing with Ben‘s own infectious originals, which hark back to the fun and swing of the 1920s and 1930s.
The group is one of the most exciting swing bands to emerge in recent years. Led by the fiery enthusiasm of 26-year-old Ben Holder, who not only wows on violin but also on vocals, the quartet is strengthened by:
the phenomenal Jez Cook on guitar;
the suave talent of Paul Jefferies on double bass; and
the breathtaking drumming of Malcolm Garrett.
The Ben Holder Quartet masterfully mix old jazz favourites with some more recent material and leave audiences up and down the country shouting for more.
