One of the most distinctive voices in jazz and improvised music today, Laura Jurd's unique approach to the trumpet is celebrated in the work that she creates. Laura's love of folk traditions can often be heard in her music, alongside a background in both jazz and classical composition, taking twists and turns that both invite surprise and evoke the inevitable. 

Laura's love of traditional music has deepened having played alongside the likes of Irish fiddle player Ultan O'Brien and English accordionist Martin Green (one third of super-group Lau). For EJBF24, she premieres new music that sees her joining these two masters of their craft, propelled by the world-class rhythm section of Ruth Goller (bass) and Corrie Dick (drums).


"Jurd seems unconcerned by transient fashions or enrolment in any kind of scene, and pursues a private muse that draws on jazz, folk traditions from Europe and the Middle East, and the harmonic language of Stravinsky – yet her work is always spiritedly accessible, and often suggests wordless songs”
