CHRISTMAS JAM SESSION

& WORKSHOP

with special guest LIAM BYRNE (sax)

 

Be sure to come to our last event of the year at the Vic, the North Wales Jazz Christmas Jam
Session, where there will be crackers, free mince pies and a grand Christmas raffle too!
Popular with both audiences and visiting musicians, the jam sessions always deliver a varied
and enjoyable programme, and any musicians with an interest in performing jazz, at whatever
level, are welcome to sit in with the band which will be fronted by the highly talented tenor
saxophonist, LIAM BYRNE and TREFOR OWEN (guitar).


From the village of Llandegla, Liam studied at Leeds College of Music and London's Guildhall
School of Music and Drama. He has a growing reputation in the UK as a torchbearer of the jazz
tenor saxophone tradition, inspired by the likes of Lester Young and Coleman Hawkins, and he
also co-leads the Brownfield Byrne Quintet and Hot Six with up and coming trumpet star Jamie Brownfield.


Wales’s premier jazz guitarist, Trefor Owen, has toured the UK with such American guitar
greats as Mundell Lowe and Randy Johnston and performed extensively in the USA, appearing
in San Francisco and LA, at the Classic American Guitar Show, New York and the prestigious
Jazz Cafe at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC. A prolific jazz educator, Trefor is
resident tutor at the renowned twice-yearly international jazz guitar weekends held in Wrexham.


If you play an instrument and want to work on your jazz skills then why not come along to
the pre-jam workshop where you will get a chance to work with the band, receiving both
individual and group guidance. For all levels of ability. Young musicians are always
particularly welcome.


With DAVE SALTRESE (keyboards), ANDY HULME (guitar),
ED HARRISON (double bass) and JOHN SMITH (drums)
