Graham Clark Quartet

Fri 8 July 2022

* Buxton Festival Commission *

Local hero and ace violinist Graham brings his acclaimed quartet to the festival.

With a 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 now perform at the festival with a new commission. 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.
