Laura Jurd | Back
Trumpet

Few UK jazz musicians can have risen to prominence more rapidly than trumpeter Laura Jurd, who seemed to spring fully formed on to the scene in 2011, the year when she won the prestigious Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition. She appeared in Newcastle in mid-2012 with the Phil Meadows Group, and later in the year received rave reviews for her debut CD, recorded with her regular band plus string quartet.

As well as being a hugely impressive jazz player, Laura is also steeped in the classical and folk traditions, and has composed a diverse range of music for a variety of instrumental and vocal ensembles.
