THE CLAUDE DEPPA and CLARE HIRST BAND (Band on stage around 2pm, performing a minimum of 2 live sets) The Deppa Hirst Band has performed at Marlborough Jazz Festival and Ipswich Jazz Festival in June in a concert recorded by the BBC; and the Swanage Jazz Festival. The music is a mixture of Claude and Clare’s eclectic compositions with influences from Township Jive to Brazilian Samba and Jamaican Reggae.


At the forefront of the African jazz music scene is South African born trumpeter and composer Claude Deppa. His music, dizzyingly eclectic, incorporates African, world, Afro-Cuban, jazz, improvised, soul, funk and European chamber music, all of which he plays with a brilliant and pungent sound. Deppa has performed with a rich array of contemporary international jazz talent, including Dewey Redman, Art Blakey, Carla Bley, Miriam Makeba, Archie Shepp, Courtney Pine, Brotherhood Of Breath and Andy Sheppard.


Clare was born in Cumbria and studied piano and clarinet until managing to get hold of a saxophone. She moved to York and then to Leeds before eventually making it to London where a successful career in pop music ensued. Having played live and on recordings with artists such as David Bowie, The Communards, Mica Paris, The Bellestars and Maxi Priest, she spent some time working with Mervyn Africa before embarking on a solo career based around her Quartet. Since then she has played with many of the country’s finest jazz musicians including Tony Kofi, Byron Wallen, Don Weller and of course Claude Deppa.
