Ben Cipolla


Wednesday 1 July 2020  8:00pm      The Croft Hall


Ben Cipolla is a Wiltshire-born singer-songwriter. His singing has been compared to “having liquid chocolate dripped in your ears,” and his distinctive upbeat and percussive guitar style is inspired by the likes of Nick Drake and Jack Johnson.

Over the past five years, he has performed annually at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, which has hugely supported his development as an artist. He has since been really fortunate to have worked with some top jazz musicians, such as Clare Teal, who has given him solo opportunities at the BBC Swing Jazz Prom, and with the CBSO and RLPO. Clare says his songs are “an exhilarating mix of different moods, tones and flavours, beautifully crafted and musically nutritious!” Jazz vocalist Ian Shaw has also described his music as being “simply great” with “fresh words, good stories and ace musicianship.”

In 2020, Cipolla (meaning onion in Italian) will be releasing his next album, Sicilia, which reflects his excitement for discovering his Sicilian roots.

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.
