Huw Warren

Huw Warren’s thoughtful and exploratory musical creations, fusions and collaborations have long been a gift to the numerous artists and writers with whom he’s worked

– Troubadour

Huw Warren is a Welsh pianist, composer and educator whose work crosses and fuses many genres. His distinctive sound, innovative and eclectic music making has achieved an international reputation, awarding him the BBC Jazz Award for Innovation, and the ACW Creative Wales Award.

Equally at home crossing the often exclusive worlds of jazz, world and contemporary music, his compositions are known to move between quirky rhythmic grooves and a simple yet profound melodic beauty. Even at his most experimental, Warren’s music is fun and approachable. With the approaching release of his first solo album since ‘Infinite Riches in a Little Room’ in 2002, this concert will be an experience of new music inspired from a wide range of material. 

Huw's early musical experiences began as a cellist and organist in South Wales before he left to study piano with experimental pianist John Tilbury at Goldsmiths, University of London and later at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In London he became highly involved in jazz and avant-garde scenes. In his career he has been involved in several projects, his jazz quartet Perfect Houseplants, the duo Dialektos and a nine piece with strings and penny whistle called A Barrel organ Far From Home are just a few. Warren has performed and collaborated with many musicians including June Tabor, Mark Feldman, Peter Herbert, Joanna Macgreggor, Iain Ballamy, Kenny Wheeler, Jim Black and more as well as writing for many ensembles including Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Welsh Chamber Orchestra and the National Youth Brass Band of Wales. 

Huw Warren must be one of the most lyrical pianists around and his playing is the most delicate and subtle imaginable

Huw Warren is one of those quietly ambitious players who for some time has contributed flair and musical intelligence to the British jazz scene
