Harry Evans – Trumpet

Harry studies trumpet at the Trinity Laban Conservative of Music and Dance, where he is taught by Chris Batchelor. He grew up in rural Norfolk where he took part in all the local music scene had to offer, including playing in the band of now-NYJO guitar chair Nick Fitch.

Harry has performed at major london venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, The Vortex, The Barbican, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Royal Albert Hall as part of the 2015 BBC Proms.

His favourite trumpeters include Bix Beiderbecke, Clark Terry, Kenny Dorham, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, and Woody Shaw.

He also studies the double bass, and performs regularly with a variety of bands. On occasion, he’s even been known to step “behind the strings” for NYJO!
