Sun 21 May
Harmonica virtuoso
Phil Hopkins


A welcome return to the Chandos for harmonica player Phil Hopkins who has been the featured soloist in West End shows such as Porgy And Bess, Gone With The Wind and Tim Rice's From Here To Eternity and has recorded as percussionist with many jazz artists including Guy Barker, Julian Joseph and Norma Winstone.

As well as revisiting the repertoire of the legendary Jean ‘Toots’ Thielemans (who pioneered the chromatic harmonica as a solo jazz instrument in its own right), tonight’s gig will feature new arrangements of classic songs by Carole King, Norah Jones, Lionel Bart and others.

Last time Phil played for us the place was packed and our audience was blown away! Book early for this special gig…
