The Hopkins-Hammond Trio

Wednesday 4 March 2020 8.30pm Churston Golf Club

The wonderful guitarist Matt Hopkins is well known to Bristol audiences making regular appearances over the years with John Pearce, Dave Newton, James Morton and Andy Sheppard. The Hopkins-Hammond Trio sees Matt teamed up with the formidably musical husband and wife team of multi-instrumentalist Ruth Hammond on Hammond Organ and the brilliant drummer Scott Hammond who is probably best known for his work with Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull but just happens to have a jazz pedigree that includes playing with Alan Barnes, Bobby Wellins, Jason Rebello and many more.

There is an undeniable chemistry between these three master musicians that is evident in everything they play. This could be well known jazz standards, tunes by the likes of John Scofield, Michael Brecker and Pat Metheny or the trio’s own compositions.
