Snake Davis Trio

As Part of the Haworth Festival Snake teams up with long time cohort and best buddy Johnny Thirkell and their mutual friend, guitarist Mark Creswell, for an evening of gorgeous mellow music infused with jazz soul and pop.
Snake Davis is one of the most in-demand rock jazz and soul sax players in the world, widely known for his solos on tracks such as Lisa Stansfield’s “Change”; M-People’s “Search For A Hero” and “Moving On Up”; and Take That’s “Million Love Songs”.

Johnny Thirkell is one of the UK’s top trumpet and flugelhorn players. He has played on hundreds of pop, rock, and jazz recordings (including 22 No.1 records) and at one stage was on at least one album in the UK charts continuously, without a break, for over 13 years!

Mark Creswell is a Virtuoso exquisite sensitive guitarist, studied at Leeds college of Music with Snake and Johnny. Mark is well known for his work with Tanita Tikaram, The Suspicions and Burden of Paradise

The three together play beautiful tunes, soulful, jazzy, emotional, moving. The choice of material reflects their collective love of strong and moving melodies. Expect Brazilian jazz, Miles Davis and some well loved tunes such as Time after Time and Wichita Lineman.
