Woodstock survivor Henry Lowther has had a varied career since the 60’s working with both the Gil Evans and George Russell Orchestras, John Dankworth, Peter King, Kenny Wheeler, Charlie Watts, Loose Tubes and John Surman on the jazz scene, to Manfred Mann, Buzzcocks, John Mayall and Keef Hartley at the legendary Woodstock Festival in August 1969. On the classical side, Henry is an accomplished composer, as well as being a featured member of the London Brass Virtuosi. Allison Neale was born in Seattle, USA and raised in Northamptonshire. Skilled and versatile, equally at home on sax or flute, she started playing by ear at an early age, assimilating the stylistic approach of many players, but above all Paul Desmond and Art Pepper, with whom she still has a particular affinity.
