Laura Jurd’s Big Friendly Band
Band on the Wall
Laura Jurd cornet & piano / Iain Ballamy tenor saxophone / James Kitchman guitar / Ruth Goller electric bass / Corrie Dick drums
Music influenced by Celtic folk traditions, New Orleans street-beats and a sprinkling of alt-rock, as Laura Jurd leads a band of world-class instrumentalists to bring this colourful music to life. Expect big friendly tunes and grooves-a-plenty.
Composer-performer Laura Jurd’s distinct voice as an improvising trumpet player is at the heart of everything she creates. Her music celebrates and innovates the rich traditions of jazz and folk music, whilst often reflecting her love of The Beatles and Stravinsky to name two notable influences. Her compositions dig into something primal, earthy and human, whilst taking twists and turns that both invite surprise and evoke the inevitable.
“A big hearted, gorgeously lyrical, feel-good romp, which does not preclude cerebral engagement but which wears its complexities so lightly that one barely notices them.” – Chris May, All About Jazz
