World renowned violinist Nigel Kennedy will be performing at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre in the autumn.

The concert on November 12 will see Mr Kennedy celebrate the works of the German composer Bach and jazz legend Fats Waller.

Mr Kennedy will begin with Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin and will then be joined by an acoustic guitarist, a snare drummer and a double bassist to perform his own arrangements of the music of Fats Waller.

Joining him on stage will be Rolf Bussalb on guitar, Yaron Stavi on bass and Krzysztof Dziedzic on snare drum.

Looking forward to appearing at the Marina, Mr Kennedy said: 'Playing Bach and Fats Waller on one show is a dream for me, two amazing keyboard players, both masters of harmony and melody.'
