Philip Clouts

Pianist Philip Clouts was born in Cape Town and has loved South African jazz from childhood. He had just finished his studies at Cambridge when he had an epiphany and he decided to concentrate on music, and specifically the South African jazz style that had followed him to London, where he set up the group Zubop. Bassist Ron Phelan studied bass in Dublin before moving to the UK. He has worked with some of the best musicians and performers in the country touring both nationally and internationally in projects ranging from jazz ensembles to large scale theatrical productions.
