Bernie Holden

Bernie found he could play tunes by ear on the recorder and mouth organ from the age of about 6 and had piano lessons for two years starting about 10. Took up clarinet in the school orchestra at 13 and by 16 was playing in local jazz bands and at 20 had made at least three TV appearances. Despite the opportunity to join a full time professional band at 21 decided to remain semi professional until more recently when he decided to do a music degree and obtained a BA Hons in Jazz at Middlesex. Established on the London jazz scene and played in New York and at many international jazz festivals including Kathmandu, Cork and North Sea
