Event Details

Violinist Benet McLean

London born multi-instrumentalist Benet McLean has been involved in music since he began violin lessons at the age of three and won a junior scholarship to the Purcell School of Music. He began on violin, (a quarter-sized model of course!), and whilst training to become a concert violinist, he also became interested in other forms of music such as jazz, bebop and a young genre rising under the name of Hip-hop. Soon teaching himself other instruments such as guitar, piano, electric bass, alto saxophone, as well as of course singing and composing, a musical melting-pot began to simmer…

Benet has released two solo albums, In the Land of Oo-Bla-Dee and Cliches (For another day). About the music McLean says: “It's an embodiment of all of my musical past, from the violin, which I played from a very early age, through to my singing and working in many different kinds of genres and bands. The ‘Oo-Bla-Dee’ can be an open window or can represent somehow the unknown…or the future.”

A list of artists Benet has played, toured and worked with internationally since the early 90’s includes: OMAR, YEHUDI MENUHIN, DENNIS ROLLINS, SIR SIMON RATTLE, DAVE O'HIGGINS, TY, STEVE WILLIAMSON, CARLEEN ANDERSON, JEAN TOUSSAINT, TOMMY SMITH, CLEVELAND WATKISS, YELLOW STATION BLUE, PHILLIP BENT, ORPHY ROBINSON, KEVIN HAYNES’ Groupo Elegua, ROACHFORD, MAXI JAZZ (Faithless), LOOSE TUBES, DON LUSHER, and many more.

“A true virtuoso on piano and violin, Benet is a musical appreciator with the most catholic of tastes…he’s brave, scrupulous, detailed and accurate. He's a man with a brain as fast and fertile as his fingers…” Julian Joseph

with JUSTEAST: Neil Angilley: keys • Jeremy Shoham: sax • Rick Finlay: drums • Phil Scragg: bass

FAQs 
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is on-street parking in the roads round the pub.
Colindale underground station (Northern Line) is a short walk away. 

Can I pay on the night?
Yes, for those who haven't pre-booked there is a collection at the interval (although you won't be entitled to the discount on meals). We do expect you to contribute the normal admission fee unless you qualify for a concessionary rate…

Are there any concessions?
There is a lower ticket price for students in full-time education. Students and unwaged can also turn up on the night and pay whatever you like (or even nothing). We want you to be able to enjoy the music, and maybe you'll come back and pay the full admission in better times…

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Don't hesitate to call Rick at Just East of Jazz on 020 8361 0265 for questions about the gig.
For queries about the pub — food, drink, access and so on, call the pub on 020 8200 0032.
