Jazz Festival: Emma Jonson takes Brewin Dolphin Best Newcomer Award

Emma Jonson Boogie Woogie PianistEmma Jonson Boogie Woogie PianistThe Brewin Dolphin Best Newcomer Award for the 2016 Marlborough Jazz festival has been won by Emma Jonson Boogie Woogie Pianist.  The result of the poll among audience members was announced on Monday (August 8).

 

Emma Jonson - with Sam on saxophone and Nick on drums - played at Godots on the Saturday afternoon of the Jazz Festival.

Emma told Marlborough.News: "I still can’t quite believe it! It was a privilege to play at Marlborough alongside some of countries top musicians. Highlight of the year for me!"

"We were completely overwhelmed by the support at Godots. The audience were on top form and we all had a great afternoon of boogie woogie and dancing."

"I stayed for the evening and went to watch some of the other bands playing.  Such a great buzz and energy about the Festival.  Nick Fogg and his team organised yet another fantastic festival."  

After the Marlborough Jazz Festival, Emma went made three appearances at the Birmingham International Jazz festival - once as a duo and twice with her quartet.

Emma studied jazz and contemporary music at the Leeds College of Music.  From there she formed her first originals blues band which toured the UK. She says the highlight of her musical career to date was supporting Jamie Callum - and singing her single Not Quite for his audience.

She is based in Birmingham - her hometown. And the Birmingham Evening Post has christened her "Brum's own boogie woogie babe..." - they said it, not me!

Ten performers were nominated for this year's Newcomer Award.  They included the Rachel Sutton Quartet, Tori Freestone, Dom and Ikos and the Clare Hirst Quartet.  

Brewin Dolphin will be presenting the award to Emma at their client Christmas party on December 8.
