Roy Williams

Roy Williams is a musician who truly needs no introduction. After extended spells with two of this country’s finest and best loved bands (Alex Welsh and Humphrey Lyttelton) Roy went freelance in 1983 and soon his masterly trombone playing earned him prized gigs on both sides of the Atlantic: the World’s Greatest Jazz Band, Bobby Rosengarten’s New York band, Peanuts Hucko’s All Stars as well as the Great British Jazz Band and the famous Jam Session that inaugurated the Birmingham Jazz Festival. His versatility and musical taste match his technical mastery, as reflected in multiple British Jazz Awards.


Roy appears in The StarCity Swing Session at 7pm on Friday 5th
