Hugh Ledigo (Piano / M.D.)

Born at the beginning of the Swing era, Hugh's original love was classical music, but his brother's success as a jazz-band-leader lured him across the tracks at a tender age.

His musical tastes still embrace Bach and Debussy, Bix and Duke. After years of jazz and nightclubs, Hugh became MD for London's prestigious Showboat Theatre-Restaurant before joining the famous Pasadena Roof Orchestra.

After belatedly completing his formal training with the concert pianist Eileen John, Hugh joined the ranks of Kenny Ball's Jazzmen in November 1987. He is equally at home playing Dixieland through to Be-Bop and beyond, and classical music - but only behind locked doors!
