Bonsai play Stratford Jazz

Ian Hughes 23rd Apr, 2019

BONSAI play Stratford Playhouse on Wednesday May 8.

Award-winning trombonist Rory Ingham (Rising Star in the 2017 British Jazz Awards) and drummer Jonny Mansfield (2018 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize winner) make up the band along with Dominic Ingham on violin/vocals, Toby Comeau on piano/keyboards and Joe Lee on bass.

“Bonsai is a group where everyone is the leader, and the music is written to be played by each other, with each other. The long-standing relationships mean that Bonsai are able to work cohesively and freely as a collective, resulting in total synergy,” explains Rory.

“Bonsai Club is about the joy of returning to a place where you feel content; no matter how much it transforms, it always feels like home.

“We translate this into accessible, inviting music that welcomes the listener, who appreciates the love we have for what we play.”
