The Grantham Conservative Club has announced the return of The Craig Milverton Trio with Craig on Piano, Al Swainger on Bass and Nick Millward on Drums.
Craig will be performing his latest show ‘A Tribute To Oscar Peterson’ with his Trio paying homage to Craig’s greatest inspiration, which highlights all the great recordings of Oscar from his biggest hit ‘Tenderly’, to his best selling Album ‘Night Train’ and also focuses on his great compositions including ‘The Canadiana Suite’ celebrating his homeland of Canada.
Craig is also very much in demand as a solo pianist, with his virtuoso ability and comprehensive knowledge of the entire jazz spectrum. He is much sought after as a skilled accompanist to such star vocalists as Stacey Kent and Tina May. His trios are regularly required to back visiting American soloists at festivals and venues across the country including Scott Hamilton, Ken Peplowski and Warren Vache.
Club secretary Mike Grimwood said: “Few British pianists have Craig’s’ thorough knowledge and grasp of jazz styles. His love of the music shines through and he is a natural at whatever he plays.”
Doors open at 7pm with the show starting at 8.30pm to 11pm, on Thursday, November 15. Members £10, Non-Members £12.
