Ben Holder Quartet


Friday 3 July 2020  8:00 - 10:00pm      The Croft Hall


We are so excited to welcome Ben back following his performance at the 2019 festival when he wowed the audience with his violin playing as part of the Paravicini Quartet.

"One of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the UK" (Oxford Jazz Festival) Ben was taught classically from the age of six, where he studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire. During his classical studies, Ben began listening to Jazz - classic masters such as Benny Goodman and Oscar Peterson and of course the great jazz violinists including Grappelli, Joe Venuti and the awe inspiring Stuff Smith.

Ben's innate sense of swing rhythm (something which often eludes classical players) stems from those early listening sessions - and his various awards bear testimony to his abilities. A first call jazz violinist for many of the North's top bands and studios.

Ben Haggerty


Thursday 9 July 2020  8:00 - 10:00pm      The Croft Hall


World renowned for his playful performances, allow Ben Haggarty to lure you into the richly metaphorical world of a full-blooded fairytale for grown-ups.

Dark, beautiful and startling by turn, this is a story of dreams, initiations and the repayment of debts – a journey from innocence to experience, which delves into a disconcertingly familiar narrative world, complete with bizarre marriages, wild hags, strange companions and magical items that can get you in and out of a lot of trouble.

Ben Haggarty performs with infectious charm and ease – fierce, fast paced, and unashamedly magical. Here rules aren't broken lightly...

'I was spell-bound - I don't use the word lightly' THE TIMES
'A fresh dose of magic you need in your life' EVERYTHING THEATRE
