The Dharma Bums

Roy Mitchell The Dharma Bums is a new trio, led by tenor saxophonist, Roy Mitchell.  Whilst in no way intended to be a “tribute” act, this project is very much an homage to the raw and earthy recordings of the early “piano-less” trios of Sonny Rollins;  the sound which originally inspired Mitchell to take up the tenor sax.  The line-up also currently features the extremely talented young bassist Thomas Alford and much respected, local drummer, Paul Armstrong, himself no stranger to this festival.
