Ben Holder is the incredible rising star of Stephane Grappelli-style jazz fiddle, bringing a mix of traditional jazz and swing with a sprinkling of Ben’s own infectious originals harking back to the excitement, energy and abandon of the 1920s and 1930s ‘Hot Club’ era.  He is joined by the trio Jim Watson (piano), Joe Pettitt (bass) and George Double (drums).

Ben Holder is arguably the most gifted jazz violinist in the UK. His classical studies began at the age of six but he was introduced to jazz in his early teens as he discovered Benny Goodman, Oscar Peterson and Stephane Grappelli and he has never looked back. His breathtaking technical ability and true showmanship on stage leave audiences across Europe on their feet and shouting for more.  

“Ben Holder has the warmth and flexibility of a sax player, and all the extra possibilities of a string instrument – lightning speed harmonics, col legno, glissando and double stopping. Chilled and confident, he also has the capacity to switch seamlessly within the same bar from virtuosic violin to vocals.” London Jazz Review 

The performance ends at approximately 9.45pm including an interval. 

Seating for this event is arranged as cabaret tables on the flat, with a mix of four- and two-person tables.
