Michael Blanchfield

Michael Blanchfield – Jazz and Contemporary Piano

Beginning his undergraduate studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in 2015, he has since become a frequent performer, compère and curator within the Cardiff music scene and beyond. 

Playing across genres, Michael endeavours to whole-heartedly embrace the particular energies of the music he plays, whilst retaining his own unique musical signature and character. This is clear in both his solo piano and ensemble arrangements, in which he brings together influences from his eclectic musical background and the rich history of jazz music: from folk, pop, blues and swing to be-bop, funk and jazz fusion. 

Michael has lead and performed in a huge number of groups and settings; for private functions, corporate conferences and dinners, weddings, parties and concerts. From his fusion organ trio and jazz quartets, to his 11-piece ABBA tribute band, Michael's experience puts him in a welcome position to adapt to whichever musical scenario with which he is presented, with reliable assurance and commitment to that particular setting.
