Musician Profile

Band Info

Sarah Thatcher – Banjo & Tenor Guitar - Sarah's first experience of playing jazz professionally was in her teens, when she played ragtime piano in a local pub with her elder brother. She used her earnings to buy a banjo and soon became a fixture in the South Wales Jazz scene with the Acme Jazz Band and the Memphis Seven.
After a short break travelling overseas, in the early 90s, Sarah met multi-instrumentalist band-leader Norman Thatcher with whom she played in numerous line-ups and projects over many years. This included tours of Scandinavia, New Orleans and Britain and frequent appearances at all the leading U.K. traditional Jazz festivals.
Her melodic, uncluttered style and solid time-keeping ensure that the other musicians have a sturdy anchor to optimise their natural virtuosity. This means that Sarah is frequently in demand as a rhythm player. As a result, she continues to play and record with leading figures in the British traditional jazz scene.
