Clark Tracey, a well-established jazz master, recognised as a most inventive jazz drummer, and, having appeared over many years with the world’s jazz greats, arrives with his new quintet of our best and youngest jazz musicians.

A Five-Time Winner of “Best Drummer” in the British Jazz Awards,
Clark Tracey is a proven group leader, writer and arranger. He has revived the famous jazz suites written by his late father, the great pianist & composer Stan Tracey, “Under Milk Wood” and “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”, bringing these masterpieces successfully to admiring younger audiences.

He creates educational Master Classes across the U.K. and continues to be an in-demand performer across the world.

Joining Clark for this Festival concert are jazz musicians, already making waves on the U.K. jazz scene.


Please join us for an inspiring evening of great music, featuring Clark Tracey – a great jazz star and band leader, alongside a combination of today’s and tomorrow’s jazz stars.
