Nicola Farnon bass and vocals, Dave Newton piano, Tony Ormesher guitar and Steve Brown drums
Nicola Farnon is widely recognised as one of the classiest jazz and swing musicians in the UK. She has a remarkable musical pedigree, both parents being professional classical musicians and her great uncle no less than the late Robert Farnon. She has also played with such Jazz luminaries as Digby Fairweather, Jim Mullen, Bruce Adams, Roy Williams and Alan Barnes and alongside class jazz acts as diverse as Eliane Elias, Courtney Pine, Georgie Fame,Tony Kofi, Michael Garrick Jazz Britannia Orchestra Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine, Humphrey Lyttleton and Acker Bilk.
Nicola’s new CD "So Farnon So Good" features her on double bass and vocals with some legends of the UK jazz scene. You can hear this music at Seven Arts. The bands' arrangements are all done by Nicola - with some melodic and extremely catchy originals thrown in for good measure.
Support: John and Kathy Dyson duo
