First-ever Young Jazz Musician to play Marlborough Festival

 Alexander BoneAlexander BoneThe first-ever jazz winner of the coveted BBC Young Musician of the Year title will be playing at Marlborough Jazz Festival, organisers have confirmed.

Alto saxophonist Alexander Bone was the first jazz musician to win the accolade, after competition organisers widened the field from solely classical music.

The 18 year old plays saxophone and piano. He composes and produces his own jazz music, and also records electronic music under the alias Boney.

“I’ve always been interested in and fascinated by music production, as well as in playing instruments,” he said.

Alexander started playing saxophone at the age of six. He passed his Grade 1 music exam within six weeks of taking up the instrument, and achieved his Grade 8 at the age of 10.

Alexander has performed with Snake Davis, Jean Toussaint, Liane Carroll and Stan Tracey and at the Royal Albert Hall and the Edinburgh Fringe and Wigan Jazz Festivals.

Delighted festival convener, Nick Fogg, said: “We’re really going places. This hugely-gifted young man is on a certain path to stardom.”
