Dale Storr is recognised as one of the UK’s leading exponents of New Orleans piano.

He tours extensively across the U.K. and Europe, whilst also finding time for private piano tuition.

The evocative music of New Orleans became a passion and he immersed himself into the styles of heroes like Professor Longhair, Dr.John, Allen Toussaint, Tuts Washington and James Booker. The latter performer became a particular source of inspiration and resulted in Dale studying the sometimes complex technique of this legendary pianist/singer.

  • “A very, very fine piano player indeed” – Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
  • “If there is a better New Orleans-style pianist in the UK than the outrageously talented Dale Storr, please point me in his or her direction because he or she must be very, very special” – Lionel Ross, Blues in Britain

In March of 2006, Dale’s passion for New Orleans music saw him perform his debut theatre gig as a soloist, concentrating on the New Orleans piano styles of his afore mentioned influences. The success of that performance led to the start of a new solo career and Dale has not looked back since.

He has continuously toured the UK far and wide, whilst also taking in much of mainland Europe – winning over a legion of fans overwhelmed by his mastery of New Orleans piano. He has reached the finals of the British Blues Awards seven years in succession and also won the 2015 best musical performance award at the Buxton Fringe Festival.

Dale’s ambition has always been to play the music of New Orleans, which can be anything from a classically influenced minuet, a latin rhumba, a back o’ town junker blues to a frenzied boogie woogie. As seen with every Dale Storr performance, he’s certainly fulfiilling that ambition.
