Playing with Bobby Shew

16th March 2013


Simon joined the wonderful trumpet player Bobby Shew on stage at Dawkes Woodwind & Brass shop in Maidenhead.

On this day, the UK’s musical instrument shops open their doors and offer free instrument "taster” lessons to the general public. There are 15 million people in the UK that either want to play an instrument or used to play one. The Day is designed to welcome people into music shops and to inspire them to get playing. People are often surprised to discover that they ARE musical and simply need a musical "experience” to get them inspired to start playing.

 

In addition to the free lessons, Dawkes built a stage in the store and invited Blakes Heaven Big Band to back Bobby Shew, Simon and another saxophonist, Simon Spillett. In addition they encourage local youth players to perform giving children the opportunity to watch their peers play on stage.


Bobby Shew is one of the best known jazz trumpeters  His biography is amazing and covers the globe, find out more about him here.
