The gig will see Gareth joined by the Chris Ingham Trio with Chris Ingham on piano, Ivars Galenieks on double bass and Russell Morgan on drums.

Gareth started playing the flute at the age of 10 and he went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London and on the Lake Placid Jazz Course in New York with Joe Lovano. Gareth was also a finalist in the Young Jazz Musician of the Year competition in 2000.
