Jamie Taylor & Sheryl Bailey

A perfect way to spend a summer’s evening at the atmospheric Holt. An intimate meeting of two incredible guitarists from opposite sides of the Atlantic. Sheffield-based Jamie Taylor, one of the UK’s leading jazz guitarists and teachers, and a Hofner Artist, meets acclaimed New Yorker Sheryl Bailey, described as having ‘one of the most compelling tones of her generation’ and being ‘among the best bop guitar players’. Sheryl is a former finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Guitar competition, and a Professor at Berklee College of Music. Together Jamie and Sheryl are guaranteed to bring you an effortless and deeply knowledgeable mix of swinging lyricism, and dynamic invention.
