“When Dom plays the piano magic happens” – Paloma Faith

“I can’t hold a candle to this guy. He’s a great piano player” - Jamie Cullum, live on Radio 2

One of Europe's most authentic and spirited blues and jazz piano players, Dom Pipkin brings his acclaimed one man show on the road with a rollercoaster ride through the rich world of New Orleans, featuring astonishing stories and some truly breathtaking piano.

Brothels and barrel houses, love, sex and tragedy, chasing the ‘rushin’ lady. Voodoo spells and Mardi Gras Queens, the colourful lives of Jelly Roll Morton, Professor Longhair and the drug-fuelled funk and psychedelia of Dr John and James Booker are conjured up in all their technicolour glory in their rawest setting –a man, a piano, a glass of bourbon and panama hat.

Pipkin has performed extensively in New Orleans, and shared stages with international icons Allen Toussaint, Dr John, and Screamin Jay Hawkins. Grammy award winner Jon Cleary invites him to jam onstage whenever he’s in the Crescent City. His experiences are real and resonating. His work has ranged from teaching Jonathan Ross the piano to privately entertaining the film director Stanley Kubrick, and performing to the opening committee of the 2012 London Olympics. He has recorded and toured with Paul Weller, Paloma Faith, Ray Davies, Morcheeba, David Byrne, Guy Barker, Ella Eyre, John Newman, Pee Wee Ellis and Laura Mvula; has dozens of radio and TV appearances to his credit and is in constant demand on the capital’s club scene.

Here are some words on The UK’s best-kept piano secret “a highly impressive pianist” - Blues In Britain magazine “A great piano player” - Andy Kershaw “..cooks up a steaming musical stew that has the crowd dancing and Clapping" - Classic Rock Blues Magazine “Love your piano playing” - Paul Weller “Dom brings the whole New Orleans thing to the UK. So good!” - Zigaboo Modeliste of international supergroup The Meters “Dom plays the kind of piano Jools can only dream about” - BeBop Spoken Here
