Local banjo player Sean Moyses will be performing his one man show Banjo World at the Angles Theatre, Wisbech this month.
The show is on Friday May 22 at 7.30pm.
He is not a stranger to the Angles and performed there with both his Moyses Family Band and his Jazz Band in the 1980’s.
He spent the next thirty years travelling the world with his music and has performed across Europe, America and as far away as Japan.
“Performing in my home town for local people is a pleasure,” said Sean.

A virtuoso player, he is regarded as among the world’s best plectrum banjo players, has recorded more than a dozen solo albums and appeared with some of the most famous names in the jazz world including Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball and The Pasadena Roof Orchestra with whom one of his crowning achievements was to play Brahm’s Hungarian Dance at the Munich Opera House.
“Banjo World is the music of the 1920’s and 30’s, George Formby, The Temperance Seven, Shep’s Banjo Boys and The Pasadena Roof Orchestra, mixed in a pot and a bit of gentle humour for good measure,” said Sean.
