with Mark Lockheart & Royal Welsh College Jazz

A Barrel Organ far from Home was Welsh jazz pianist Huw Warren’s first solo album, released in 1997. To celebrate both its 25th anniversary and the composer’s 60th birthday, Warren has created new arrangements, featuring award-winning saxophonist and longtime collaborator Mark Lockheart and our own jazz and string players. The music was inspired by black and white images by pioneering English photographer John Topham, which captured the ‘ordinary way of life of ordinary people’, and these images will feature in specially created visuals from our technical theatre department.
