Jade Gall and Jonathan Watts come to Dart Music Festival

Jade Gall

Jade Gall is a classically trained saxophonist who graduated in 2013 from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama as a Master of Arts in Music Performance. 

She studied with Lara James and Gerard McChrystal during her time there and she is now going onto pursue her love for the Tenor Saxophone by increasing the awareness for this fantastic instrument.

Jade is very keen in promoting the saxophone as a worthy classical concert instrument, especially the tenor saxophone, which is where she feels most at home. She is always actively organising concerts in and around the Devon Area.

Although Jade is a classically trained saxophonist, she loves to play in other styles of music. Jade plays tenor saxophone for Michael Campari and the Solar System and has stood in for other Devon based bands which include Freshly Squeezed and the Simmertones. Jade will be performing with Jonathan Watts during the Festival.
