Karl Mullen

– Posted in: Friday 26 April 6.30pm

Café (to 7.20pm) Free event

Karl started playing piano aged 4. As the son of a clergyman he was playing Church organ from around age 9, and has been gigging ever since in all sorts of situations… from a European tour with a rock band to playing jazz in remote Ghanaian villages and teaching piano in Ethiopia. He is influenced by the great boogie-woogie and stride players as well as Oscar Peterson and Ahmad Jamal, and specializes in solo piano jazzy arrangements of everything from Rimsky Korsakov to Madness and the Beach Boys.
