Joe Thompson and special guests treat you to the high quality jazz you’d expect from Ivy resident musicians. 

Our first special guest will be Conservatoire regular Charlie Pyne plays a mean bass but always with a dazzling smile! A fabulous teacher, Charlie even runs her own amateur classical orchestra up in Camden Town. She also has her own jazz quartet and recently released her debut album, Dancing Shadows.

Charlie Pyne

Also coming along will be Mark Ridout - a superb guitarist and educator. He has played live with many jazz greats including Jimmy Smith and Natalie Cole and has appeared on many jazz recordings as well as a few rock and pop albums. His many radio and tv appearances include Strictly Come Dancing - but without the sequins! Perhaps Mark’s greatest success is in teaching youngsters. His daughter Alexandra won BBC jazz musician of the year in 2016 and his two drumming and sax playing sons are great musicians too. Come and see him play the guitar like it should be played.

Mark Ridout

Joe will also lead a workshop for five young musicians who then have an opportunity to perform with him and his friends at the concert. Click here for more details.
