Ben Thomas is an innovative trumpeter and composer producing music, words and pictures. His creative output showcases a seamless interplay of music and art.
Ben has a wealth of over 30 years experience as a performer on stage, TV and radio in a range of musical genres. Trumpet playing lies at the heart of his expression and manifests in a vibrant explosion of colour and sound.
‘Marvel in the rather strange sound’ (Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales)
Jim Blomfield is the pianist of choice to accompany some of the UK’s biggest jazz names at numerous venues and festivals up and down the country.
He is a brilliant musician and composer with a flare for vibrant and creative expression culminating in dazzling improvisations.
