Dan Forshaw is a charismatic and engaging musician who seeks to inspire the public. Born in Blackpool, Lancashire Dan was active on the northwestern jazz scene at the end of his adolescence. In 2004, Dan was invited by Branford Marsalis to study with him in the United States and, upon his return to the UK in 2005, he moved to London to continue his studies.
Dan moved to Belfast in 2007 and was active on the small but flourishing Irish jazz scene. He returned to England in 2012 and played with a group of musicians and concert halls from St. Paul’s Cathedral to the Pizza Express Jazz Club.
Forshaw’s latest album, Jazz Vespers, was recorded in 2016 and features British jazz stars Tony Kofi, Steve Fishwick and Juliet Kelly, as well as Dan’s usual quartet.
