Award Winning virtuoso harmonica player and pianist Adam Glasser brings a leading band of contemporary jazz musicians to play his trademark township jazz and the classic repertoire of the great harmonica player Toots Thielemans!

Adam’s unique harmonica sound combines his South African roots with many years immersed in the UK jazz scene as well as with SA legends such as Dudu Pukwana and Hugh Masekela, plus with Joe Zawinul, Martha Reeves, Jimmy Witherspoon, Sting and the Eurythmics. This concert series explores rarely heard township jazz standards across a range of great South African composers from Abdullah Ibrahim to Caiphus Semenya, Victor Ndlazilwana and Themba Mkhize.

Before the show – at 6:15pm – Adam will host a 45 minute South Africa Jazz Workshop with a talk on the history of South African jazz in Britain and some insights into his journey as a chromatic harmonica player.  The session will include a taste of  practical teaching – so bring your harmonica if you have one! 

Adam will have on sale inexpensive starter harmonicas & free pdf instruction guide & links to instructional audio & video available at the concert.
