The Red Hot Jazz Club presents

Return of the Native


An exciting evening of brand new original jazz that blends beautiful melodies, lush chords and crazy rhythms.

Plus a delicious dinner from The Old Tannery!


Somerset group, Return of the Native, is a creative collaboration between musicians Hywel Davies (piano), Will Rees-Jones (sax), Luke Belcher (bass), and Luke McCarthy (drums).

They originally formed just before the pandemic to celebrate the homecoming of Will, their saxophone player, after his first term studying at Guildhall School of Music. The group has since evolved into a celebration of the band members’ own original music.

Between them, they have created some wonderful and exciting music, blending beautiful harmonies, unusual timings and lush melodies together to make their own form of modern jazz.

Hywel Davies and Luke Belcher are regular players on the South West jazz scene and beyond. Will Rees-Jones and Luke McCarthy are both young, gifted players from Wells and Shepton, and clearly destined for great things in the wider jazz world.


This is going to be something a little bit different to our previous shows and we think you’re going to love it. So join us for some truly great playing and beautiful music.
