The Joe English Trio

Young, local rising star pianist Joe leads his trio for the whole season of Jazzups as part of our Youth Jazz initiative. This is enabled primarily by the proceeds from the JazzUp Spring Draw, which took place for the two limited edition Charlie Parker prints by artist (and bassist of The Specials) Horace Panter.

+ DJs: Les Jazz Rats

Our resident JazzUP DJs Sten King and Eric Ransinangue deliver that unique JazzUp vibe. Sten (aka @earthboundboy) is well known as presenter of the weekly hip hop show ‘The Boom bap boutique’ on @runtheriddimradio, every other Monday 9 -11pm. Eric is a well-known Hitchin figure as landlord of The Highlander Pub, one of the area’s top venues for live jazz.
