Conscia Jazz, the Bedford based jazz promotion and education company are delighted to bring Stuart McCallum to MK Gallery on Thursday 6 April to perform solo. This is the 4th time he has been involved with a Conscia Jazz event and has always wowed local audiences.

Stuart McCallum is a Manchester based guitarist, best known for his work with The Cinematic Orchestra. He has also worked with some top jazz names, including Ari Hoenig, Ira Coleman, Tim Garland, John Surman and Kenny Wheeler.

In this solo acoustic setting, Stuart uses three different acoustic guitars to play some of his own original compositions as well as re-imagining and re-sculpting some well-known jazz standards into fresh shapes. Stuart admits to influences from Pat Metheny to Bill Frisell, Bon Iver to Jerry Douglas and Gerald Finzi to Kelly Joe Phelps. His use of loops, soundscapes and open tunings evokes a combination of chilled-out bliss and sublimated yearning, creating music that is a balm for the soul.
