Burton Bradstock – next Logboat session

BBYou are advised to book early for Poole Museum’s next logboat session, on Thursday 15th May at 7.30 pm, offering a fascinating blend of traditional English folk and jazz.

Burton Bradstock is the stylistic alter ego of the multi-instrument musician and composer Jimmy Cannon and was created along with his debut album, All Upon A Lovely Summer’s Day, which recasts English folk songs from the early to mid-nineteenth century into the modern jazz vernacular. A native of Cornwall, Bradstock is an accomplished saxophonist who has toured and performed with Sir Tom Jones, The Pasadena Roof Orchestra, The Commitments and The Syd Lawrence Orchestra. As a member of staff at London Centre of Contemporary Music (LCCM), he teaches songwriting and performance courses, and is a regular visiting tutor at Junior Trinity and Tech music schools.

In All Upon A Lovely Summer’s Day, Bradstock successfully marries his love and practice of jazz with the nostalgia of his childhood; combining the simple and well-loved melodies of English folk songs such as ‘Salisbury Plain’, ‘The Ashgrove’, ‘Early One Morning and ‘John Barleycorn’ with intricate rhythms and contemporary harmonies.
