Join Dom Pipkin for a very special end of festival New Orleans style Mardi Gras party on Saturday June 16th in the marquee on the village green.
Dom is one of Europe’s most respected and authentic New Orleans style piano players with playing credits ranging from Ray Davis to Paul Weller and Paloma Faith. He performs all over Europe, the US, and frequently on radio and TV.
Playing the piano since childhood, Dom Pipkin studied at the Guildhall School of Music and the Royal Academy of music in London, but found his restless spirit drove him to playing with jazz and blues bands as a more practical education. He travelled the world with Errol Linton’s Blues Vibe, discovering the New Orleans piano sound of Dr John and Professor Longhair along the way. . He has played solo piano for film director legend Stanley Kubrik, and ran a successful New Orleans music night at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London for two years.
Dom is widely accepted one of the best interpreters of New Orleans piano in the UK, writes about and promotes New Orleans music, and leads the band ‘Dom & The Iko’s’, current favourites on the international festival and blues circuit, holds down a couple of London piano residencies, and was until recently Musical Director for British international pop sensation Paloma Faith, with countless TV, radio, and live appearances throughout the globe.
Bring the whole family for an evening of fabulously entertaining music, great atmosphere, delicious food and a bar. Not to be missed!
