About Chris Bridges

Chris Bridges is a musician and a teacher who is passionate about making all kinds of music accessible to everyone.  He graduated as a trombonist from the RNCM in 1990 and since then has become a part of the North West Jazz scene, enjoying playing in a range of styles and with all kinds of bands.  Recently he has been playing regularly with Henry Botham‘s Nightcreatures, a very funky New Orleans style group, and with Manchester’s finest ska collective, Baked A La Ska.

His own projects have included several pieces written for the Manchester Jazz Festival (including Finding The Thing, a miniature oratorio about a man’s existential argument with his television), the String and Bone duo with guitarist Keith Phillips and the  Cusp Quartet.
