Live music on our Jazz Tours: Declan Forde

We’re very excited and honoured to announce that Declan Forde will perform on Saturday 25th. Declan Forde was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1992. In 2014, after completing his Bachelor studies at Leeds College of Music, he relocated to Berlin and has since established himself as one of the most in demand pianists on the Jazz and Improvised Music scenes there.

He is currently the recipient of the Yorkshire Live Music Project Bursary (2014-2016) and was a finalist in the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year 2015. In Berlin, Forde plays regularly with the Far East Trio and James Banner’s Eleven as well as Declan Forde’s SPROGGITS – who release their debut album later this year on UK label New Jazz Records.
