John Wheatcroft Trio

Sunday 28th April 2024
3:00PM - 6:00PM

The John Wheatcroft Acoustic Trio

Guitarist John Wheatcroft seamlessly integrates the sound and approach of modern jazz with the timeless Franco-American swing of the legendary Django Reinhardt, producing a sound that is both rooted in the traditions of the genre and vital, forward thinking and is highly original. John will be joined by Micky Dunne on rhythm guitar and the Mark Rose on double bass, performing a mix of original compositions and compelling arrangements with improvisation and group interplay to the fore. This promises to be an event not to be missed. 

John leads a busy double-life as an artist and an educator. He has performed with artists as diverse as Billy Cobham (Miles Davis), Biréli Lagrène, Alex Acuña, John Williams, Frank Gambale (Chick Corea), Paco Peña, Mike Clark and Bill Summers (The Headhunters), Carl Verheyen (Supertramp), Ralph Salmins, Paul Elliott, Keith Carlock and Laurence Cottle. John has toured the world with both Carl Palmer (ELP) and John Jorgenson (Elton John/ Hellecasters) and he is a regular contributor to Guitar Techniques UK, along with contributing numerous lessons for Guitarist UK, Guitar Part (France) and Guitar World (USA).
