Lancaster Jazz Festival is proud to present this year’s festival headliner, the Neil Cowley Trio. This group is not your typical jazz trio. A dazzling composer, pianist Cowley creates deeply engaging, and dynamic music that journeys between poetic and poignant, pomp and splendour to powerful rip-roaring riffs. It is instrumental music that draws from a wide range of references, and is powerful enough to break down standard perceptions of genre. It’s sheer emotion and energy touches lovers of all music.
