Jazz Night: Harry Sankey & Olly Wilby

Monday 17 July 2017

The Bedford Arms, 2 Bromham Road, Bedford MK40 2QA

Leading the session at The Bedford Arms this week will be Guitarist Harry Sankey. Harry will be joined by Olly Wilby on Tenor Saxophone and Clarinet, Luke Steele on Double Bass & Mark Hale on Drums.

Harry Sankey is a jazz guitarist from London. He's sought to study with some of the greatest jazz guitarists alive today including Howard Alden, Dave Cliff, Peter Bernstein, Jacob Fischer, John Pizzarelli, Dr Martin Taylor MBE and Andreas Oberg.

He's especially a fan and of the great Charlie Christian, and the first generation post Christian jazz guitarists such as Barney Kessel, Tal Farlow, Joe Pass, Jimmy Raney and Herb Ellis. 

He's been honoured to perform at some amazing venues including Love Supreme Jazz Festival, Turin Jazz Club, The 606, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Bristol Jazz Festival, The Royal Festival Hall, The Albert Hall and my work with music has taken me as far afield as The USA, Brazil, Norway, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Denmark, Taiwan, Belgium and Finland. 

Music starts at 8.30pm, with suggested contributions of £5 per person to ensure the musicians get a fair fee for their performance.
