Byron Wallen

Birmingham Jazz Festival

Originally from Tottenham, Byron Wallen has lived in Woolwich, South East London, for nearly 20 years. He was commissioned by PRS For Music Foundation to compose a suite of music celebrating his chosen home town, a suite which became known as ‘Anthem for Woolwich’. Reflecting on Woolwich’s vibrancy, multiculturalism and lively community spirit, the suite is a portrait of a once paramount part of London in a time of transformational promise. 

Line Up: Byron Wallen – Trumpet, Rob Luft – Guitar, Paul Michael – Bass and Rod Youngs - Drums
