BOOK TICKETS

 

Winner of 2023 BBC Radio Scotland Young Jazz Musician of the Year,  Edinburgh-born pianist and composer Ben Shankland is, despite his young  age, already gaining recognition on the UK jazz scene. He began his musical journey studying classical piano and bassoon, which greatly  developed his general musicality before finding an interest in jazz in his teens. Before long, he was hooked and began honing his craft as a member of Scotland’s finest youth jazz orchestras, with mentorship from  pianists John Turville and Alan Benzie, and saxophonists Tommy Smith and Mike Williams.

‘He is the perfect all-round musician, thoroughly grounded in the history and feel of jazz.’ – John Turville, Jazz Pianist
‘Great effervescence and jazz creativity’ – Tommy Smith, Jazz Saxophonist
