Ticket Info: Adult - £10.00; Accompanied under 16s - £2.00

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Ian (saxophones) and Dominic (piano) have been performing together for a number of years playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and original compositions. Their style of jazz concentrates on developing melodic ideas within the framework of the melody of a tune, whilst maintaining the concept and groove behind it. The result is a very accessible melodic style which allows them to explore, improvise and develop ideas without losing the essence of each piece of music, and to interact together in as creative a way as possible.

They have had enormous success over many years during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with their very successful show “Jazz at Lunchtime”. Thousands of people have come to see them perform, with many sell-out shows. A number of visitors to the Edinburgh Fringe from all over the world have returned year after year.

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, the duo has regularly and extensively toured throughout the UK. They have embarked on many rural tours under their “Jazz in the Village” series, playing in hundreds of halls, often bringing jazz for the first time to remote communities, performing in intimate settings to appreciative audiences. The beautiful Scottish scenery that they have seen on their travels has inspired the writing of many pieces of music by Ian.

Ian and Dom have also performed in a number of festivals including:

Edinburgh Jazz Festival Glasgow Jazz Festival Fife Jazz Festival Callander Jazz Festival Borders Jazz Festival Bath Fringe Festival Buxton Fringe Festival John O’Groats Book Festival

They have also performed in Arts Centres and small theatres throughout the country, such as: The Lyth Arts Centre, Kirkudbright Arts Centre; East Kilbride Arts Centre; Aberdeen Art Gallery (Cowdray Hall); The Loft, Winchester; Knock Castle, Crieff; The Firestaion Arts Centre, Windsor; Norden Farm Arts Centre, Maidenhead; The Lot Arts Centre, Edinburgh; Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine; The Old Well Theatre, Moffat; Lockerbie Little Theatre; Dibble Tree Theatre, Carnoustie; The City Theatre, Durham; Mission Theatre, Bath; The Doghouse Jazz Club, Ramsbottom; Henry’s Jazz Cellar, Edinburgh; Links Hotel Jazz Club, Montrose; Swallow Theatre, Newton Stewart; National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh; The Blue Lamp, Aberdeen; Bearsden Town Hall and The Music Village, Brussels.
