Pianist Liam Dunachie
Sunday, April 21st
“Dunachie, is the kind of piano player that, at one time, seemed to have been washed away with the tide. Not so, he comps and solos – he swings for today” Bebop Spoken Here
Liam Dunachie is a pianist, composer and arranger based in London.
Originally from Shropshire, he began his musical training as a treble chorister in Hereford Cathedral Choir and later studied music at Trinity College, Cambridge where he was a choral scholar in its world renowned choir under Stephen Layton. At Cambridge he studied composition with Robin Holloway and Richard Marlow and co-directed the Cambridge University Jazz Orchestra with which he toured Budapest, Rome and performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
After graduating from Cambridge, Liam won a scholarship to study jazz piano and arranging at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama where he studied with Malcolm Edmonstone, Nikki Iles and Scott Stroman among others. He has performed with the London Jazz Orchestra and appeared with many different artists including Jim Mullen, Tony Kofi, Nigel Price, Josh Kemp and Henry Lowther and at prestigious venues including Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, The Savoy Hotel and The Royal Albert Hall.
As an accompanist and session pianist he has worked for a wide variety of organisations, including BBC2’s The Choir with Gareth Malone, Opera Up Close, and has worked in several of London’s premier recording Studios including Air, Angel and The Pool.
As a composer and arranger he has also produced arrangements in recent months for the City of London Sinfonia and had his work performed by Trinity College Choir on a recent tour across the USA and Canada. He has also worked as a Musical Director for National Youth Music Theatre.
“…a pianist of exceptional versatility, responsive to every move and able to switch from rumbustious New Orleans style r&b to solid blues and rock’n’roll before calming down for something quietly lyrical, all with consummate ease” London Jazz News
with Jeremy Shoham: sax • Phil Scragg: bass • Rick Finlay: drums
