About the event

Elly Hopkins & Stuart Oliver met jamming on the vibrant Bristol jazz scene. Having spent time studying swing music in New Orleans and Paris respectively, they each share a love of early jazz standards from the 30s and 40s. Taking inspiration from artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Django Reinhardt, a set from Hopkins & Oliver is full of toe-tapping rhythm, mischief and heart, with all the radiance and intimacy of a fireside session.   They play regularly in venues in Bristol (St Georges, Bristol Beacon) and around the South West, and often in London (Royal Albert Hall) and further afield; at festivals,  private parties, weddings and corporate events. They often expand the duo to include double bass and saxophone. As members of the prestigious Live Music Now scheme, they perform in SEN schools, care homes, hospitals and community settings - read more about this on the workshop page.
