Jazz piano concert

“Gwilym’s an original. A creative genius.” Chick Corea

In conjunction with the Cambridge Modern Jazz Club we welcome international jazz pianist Gwilym Simcock for an extraordinary evening at Stapleford Granary with its beautiful Steinway piano.

Gwilym Simcock is one of the most gifted pianists and imaginative composers on the British scene. Able to move effortlessly between jazz and classical music, he can, at times, inhabit both worlds and has been described as stylistically reminiscent of Keith Jarrett. Gwilym’s influences include jazz legends Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea and John Taylor, and classical composers Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky and Mark-Anthony Turnage.
