                      Chris Walker


    Chris Walker has for over 30 years presented a weekly Jazz Programme

  • broadcast by radio stations all over the world. However he is also a very

  • fine musician and was a founder member of the famous Real Ale and

  • Thunder Band, who’s many T.V appearances, included “Songs of Praise”  for the BBC.

    A while ago he decided to get back to his roots and recreate the hit tunes

  • of the British “Trad Jazz” boom of the 50’s and 60’s. To do this he formed

  • The Pedigree Jazz Band. In their show “SALUTE TO TRAD JAZZ they play

  • the most popular tunes of the era, such as ‘Midnight in Moscow’, ‘Petite

  • Fleur’, ‘Green Leaves Of Summer’ and many others.  The band has proved

  • to be a resounding success, with rave reviews and repeat bookings from

  • nearly everywhere they perform.

    Hence they now tour extensively, and if you miss them when they are in

    your area, you will miss out on a great show.

    The launch of this venture was greatly helped with continuing sponsorship

    from Marston’s Brewery.


                           It was Fabulous Guitar playing from 

                      JIM MULLEN & NEIL BURNS 

                            on September 1st

    they were supported by Coach York on drums & Kevin Sanders on bass         


Jim Mullen is a truly original voice in contemporary jazz guitar

He has a distinctive style - picking with the thumb rather than a plectrum.

Originally from Glasgow, he moved to London in 1969,  working & recording many albums in the groups

 of Pete Brown , Brian Auger, Vinegar Joe, and Kokomo. In 1975 he met tenor sax player Dick 

Morrissey, and they began a 15 year association as the legendary funk band Morrissey Mullen

He has recorded albums with jazz vocalist Claire Martin, and a series of Quartets. As sideman he is 

in demand by many visiting U.S. Stars . He is three times winner of 'Best Guitar' in the BT jazz

awards, several times 'Best Guitar' in the British Jazz Awards and has also won a Parliamentary Jazz Award.


Neil Burns grew up in Glasgow, and has known Jim since he was a small child. He has worked extensively in the south west and is greatly in demand as a guitarist and teacher.

This quartet – Jim, Neil, Coach & Kevin - has performed many gigs from St Ives to Southport.
