Graham Clark Quartet

Fri 8 July 2022

Graham Clark Violin
Richard Wetherall Piano
Paul Baxter Bass
Johnny Hunter Drums

With his strongly personal approach to playing violin, Graham Clark has played in many jazz, rock, and experimental contexts, including a long partnership with Daevid Allen of Gong, several improvising groups, and numerous recordings. Since 2005, Graham has been putting on a weekly jazz duo gig in Buxton. By playing with the cream of the North West’s pianists, he has built a loyal and enthusiastic audience.

His quartet will perform an original work written especially for this concert, inspired by living in Buxton for over twenty-five years. The new body of work will be played alongside Graham’s favourite jazz standards.
