John Garner

A graduate of The Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music & Drama, formally trained in classical, jazz and South Indian music, John defies categorisation and is continually seeking new avenues of artistic expression, not least with his own groups Charkie Parlour, EMANATA, Mainly Two & The Guastalla Quartet. He is also the co-director, alongside violinist Marie Schreer, of Turquoise Coconut, an independent record label with a colourfully eclectic output.

'A leader in your generation.' - Paul Gambaccini
'A classically expert violinist who produced sounds which no violin ought to make.' - bebop spoken here
'An incredibly humble and adaptive musician whose creativity is unceasing.' - Flyotw Film
