Julian Nicholas is new to Mike Hatchard’s jazz breakfasts but not new to the Ropetackle as he has been a mainstay of the jazz festival in these hallowed walls.

“Julian is one of those rare players whose playing is a direct reflection of his true character and nature. Uplifting, intelligent, positive, genuine and filled with joy. I’ve enjoyed listening to him every time – one of my real faves!” ~ Iain Bellamy

“At the tender age of 23 Julian Nicholas strolled into a vacant LOOSE TUBES saxophone position, assimilated the varied and enormous improvisational vocabulary of Arguelles, Ballamy, Buckley, Lockhart, added his own cheeky twist and became his own man. He’s a courageous soloist with a strong conviction about the importance of music to society, and he has the same energy now as when I met him – and the same cheeky twist!” ~ Django Bates 

“When you’ve got recommendations from people of that reputation you don’t need anything further from me – except come and see him play with my band, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I certainly will.” ~ Mike Hatchard 

Pastries and cakes will be available to purchase.
