RVJB Festival Present Aaron Liddard Nylon Man at St Mary’s Centre

Sunday 30 April 2023

Aaron Liddard is an energetic saxophonist and composer. Aaron released Nylon Man to critical acclaim in 2022. He has performed in the bands of Amy Winehouse, Beverley Knight, Bob Geldof and for Prince’s now-legendary 21 days at the 02 Arena.

Featuring a plethora of guest contributions from the likes of Carleen Anderson, Omar Puente and Miss Baby Sol, Nylon Man is 12 tracks of jazz influenced by the music of Europe, North and South America, the Caribbean and Africa.

In his prolific and wide-ranging career, Aaron has contributed to many different musical experiences, including working with Amy Winehouse, Prince, and Maceo Parker, and in genres ranging from hip-hop and rock to Latin music and gospel. But jazz has always been the closest music to his heart. “Jazz is the only living musical art-form that is not defined by its exclusions,” says Aaron. “At its truest, jazz is an evolving aural tradition. As a musician with myriad musical influences, jazz is the only home that allows me to fully explore.”

Aaron is touring Nylon Man with his band affectionately called ‘The Argonauts.’ Shows are inclusive, serious, and fun. Music for reflection and celebration. Audiences have been known to get involved, spontaneously clapping, singing along and dancing. The multi-ethic sextet combines members from the UK, Italy, and Ghana.

Aaron has recorded for Amy Winehouse, The Boomtown Rats, Beverley Knight, Sugaray Rayford (USA), Walter Trout (USA), Johnny Rawls (USA), Douglas Avery (USA), Georgia Crandon (UK), Mista Trick (UK) and thirty other albums. He is working on new music and performs with a small selection of incredible artists.
