UK jazz violinist Mike Piggott presents an entertaining programme of jazz favourites from the music of Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, Cole Porter, Fats Waller, George Gershwin to the “Blues”. The show also includes the music of other jazz violinists including Joe Venuti and Stuff Smith – also one or two unusual musical instruments!

Mike has performed, recorded and toured with a wide range of artists including Martin Taylor, Nigel Kennedy, Ken Peplowski, and Phil Collins. It is fantastic to welcome him to Twickenham Jazz Club. The joint will be a jump in.

His Glittering Band includes Nils Solberg (guitar and vocals) who has toured recorded and broadcast with Nigel Kennedy, Clare Teal, and Bryan Ferry

Peter Morgan on double bass: A much loved and highly respected local musician who is much sought after by visiting American Jazz musicians and has played with Digby Fairweather, Don Rendell, Acker Bilk and many more.
