Up and coming sax star Alex Clarke has an assurance and awareness of tradition remarkable in one so young – as her many fans found at last year’s festival. Predominantly a tenor saxist who acknowledges the influence of Lester Young and Ben Webster, she is equally at home playing clarinet with Dixieland bands. Now restrictions permit, she is once again filling up a datesheet that sees her working with a huge variety of bands in the Midlands and the North West and keeping such eminent musical company as Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams and Greg Abate.
Catch her at the following times and places:
|Wed 21st||19:00||Live Stream with Alan Barnes – watch it at The Brasshouse, The Bull’s Head or online|
