About the event
Dominic Ingham is a violinist and composer who seeks to combine violin techniques from his folk and classical background, in order to create a unique way of playing jazz violin. His compositions are influenced by those of Pat Metheny, Ambrose Akinmusire, Vince Mendoza, as well as classical composers such as Ravel and Debussy. Dominic’s Quintet features Jonny Mansfield (winner of 2018 Kenny Wheeler Prize) on vibraphone, David Swan on Piano, Will Sach on bass and Jay Davis on drums. They explore new musical spaces through this unusual line-up, as well as performing “modern-day lullabies”.
Dominic is currently a member of Bonsai, who are ‘one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed young bands on the UK scene’. He has toured extensively across the UK and Europe, playing at prestigious venues/festivals such as Ronnie Scotts, Love Supreme, The Royal Albert Hall, The Barbican and EFG London Jazz Festival. In 2020, he was a semifinalist in the Zbigniew Seifert International Jazz Violin Competition.
In 2020 Dominic released his debut album ‘Role Models’ to critical acclaim. He is currently touring this music around the UK with funding from Arts Council England. In the same year he was a semifinalist in the Zbigniew Seifert International Jazz Violin Competition.
Dominic is also a keen educator and holds the position of Jazz Violin / Improvisation Tutor at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester.
