About the event

Will Barnes (guitar) is joined by James Batten (drums), Jack Gonsalez (piano) and Clovis Phillips (bass) - a tight collective of experienced jazz instrumentalists. Presenting songs from their debut album, ‘Source of the Severn’. Expect a contemporary edge to the classic bebop style, with a stunning collection of original, fresh compositions that have been inspired by the breathtaking scenery of Mid-Wales and the Marches as well as taking influence from the likes of Wes Montgomery, Bill Evans, Pat Metheny and Oscar Peterson.

The quartet released their debut album on AAB Records to critical acclaim in Oct 2023 and have completed the first leg of a UK tour in support of the release to sell out audiences in arts centres and theatres. They have also performed at some of the country’s top jazz clubs and festivals and have secured appearances at Brecon Jazz Festival, Hay Festival, Pizza Express (Soho) and BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends.

Will is endorsed by Rob Williams guitars and Rotosound Strings.
