4th May 2022

“One of the best jazz-fiddlers active anywhere” – New York Times

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 Piggott – Described by Jazz Uk as a “Master of the Violin” is also a favourite violinist and guitarist of many musicians. Mike has performed, recorded and toured with a wide range of artists including Martin Taylor, Nigel Kennedy, Ken Peplowski, and Phil Collins. It was fantastic to welcome him to Twickenham Jazz Club. The joint will be a jump-in.
