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
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.
