Dominic Ingham Quartet (2nd show)


Dominic Ingham – Violin
Jonny Mansfield – Vibraphone
Will Sach – Double Bass
Dave Hamblett – Drums



Dominic Ingham is a violinist, singer and composer who seeks to combine violin techniques from his folk and classical background, in order to create a unique way of playing jazz violin. His compositions are influenced by those of Pat Metheny, Ambrose Akinmusire, Vince Mendoza, as well as classical composers such as Ravel and Debussy. Dominic’s quartet features Jonny Mansfield (2018 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize winner) on vibraphone, Will Sach on Bass and Dave Hamblett on drums. They explore new musical spaces through this unusual line up as well as performing “modern day lullabies”.

Dominic has performed in a broad range of musical contexts, most notably with Bonsai (‘one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed young bands on the UK scene’) Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet and Camila Meza’s Nectar Orchestra. Dominic has toured extensively across the UK and Europe in venues such as Ronnie Scotts, Love Supreme, The Royal Albert Hall, EFG London Jazz Festival, The Barbican, Heaven and Band on the Wall. Most recently Dominic was a semifinalist in the Seifert International Jazz Violin Competition, where he performed compositions from his debut album ‘Role Models’ (2020).
