Sax Sunday – Snake Davis and John Thirkell
John Thirkell is one of Britain’s top trumpet and flugelhorn players. Since the 1980s, he has played on literally hundreds of pop, rock, and jazz recordings and has also appeared on 22 No.1 records. He was on at least one album in the UK charts continuously, without a break, for more than 13 years and in 2009 he had two consecutive UK No.1 singles with Pixie Lott. John left school at 16 and worked in a coal mine before heading off to uni then to Leeds College of Music where he and Snake met. They have played together as often as possible ever since.
STOP PRESS! Snake and John will now be joined by guitarist Mark Creswell (Burden of Paradise, Suspicions, Tanita Tikaram). A Ropery Hall world premiere!
