The young jazz violinist Ben Holder is the guest musician at Pete Allen’s jazz session at Sidholme Hotel on Sunday, October 27.

He has been described as 'one of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the UK', and the last time he performed at the Sidholme Hotel music room, it was packed to capacity.

Ben Holder studied classical piano and violin from the age of six, and attended the Birmingham Conservatoire.

During his studies he discovered jazz, and analysed the techniques of the great masters including Stephane Grapelli, as he developed his own flamboyant style of playing.

The concert will start at 3pm, with doors opening at 2.30pm. Admission is £14.50.
