Ben Holder is the most acclaimed and exciting jazz violinist in the UK. Classically-trained, his introduction to jazz masters such as Benny Goodman, Oscar Peterson and Stephane Grappelli lead Ben to truly find his place as a musician. The ginger violin guy, as he’s been dubbed, fronts a group also featuring Chris Ingham on keyboards, Owen Morgan on bass and George Double on drums.

Ben Holder is one of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the UK. Taught classically from the age of six, he studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire. During his classical studies, Ben began listening to Jazz – classic masters such as Benny Goodman and Oscar Peterson and of course the great jazz violinists including Grappelli, Joe Venuti and the awe inspiring Stuff Smith.

Alongside his early studies and later at college he embarked on a detailed analysis of these musicians techniques and the way in which they merged this most classical of instruments into the jazz idiom.
