Mark Williams Trio
Hot off the back of their much anticipated second album launch (Last Bus to Bensham) with rave reviews, the Mark Williams Trio are back in Durham for the first time in over a year.
Mark Williams is a guitarist/composer from Belfast.
Now based in Newcastle he has worked with some of the top jazz musicians in the country.
Accompanied by Paul Susans (bass) and Russ Morgan (drums), the trio twists through swing and subtle ballads, to modern groove based fusion with ease showcasing compositional and improvisational talents.
“….his technique is phenomenal and he does it with so much feeling and underlying emotion.”
– Bebop Spoken Here.
“The trio’s compositions are utterly distinctive, and serve as great vehicles for fine playing from all three members of the trio.”
– Paul Bream’s Jazz Alert
Doors from 7:00pm, music starts at 8pm (Two 45 min sets with a break)
