Easter Sun 16 April
Blues organist
Bob Haddrell


Bob has appeared several times at Chandos Arms Jazz providing immaculate keyboard backing to guest like Dave O’Higgins and Nick Payn. Tonight we are delighted to welcome him back as a leader in his own right, with a swinging set of organ trio jazz and blues guaranteed to set the place alight.

Bob has a distinguished pedigree as one of the UK’s foremost blues keyboardists, and his work on Hammond organ is renowned. The mark of the great Hammond player is the addition of pedal bass, a feat of coordination which needs to be seen to be believed! With the addition of the occasional vocal too, Bob is a musical powerhouse on the stage.
