Holly Manktelow - Piano


An exceptionally gifted pianist who also started life as a classical musician, gaining a place to study piano at the prestigious Royal Northern College of Music. Holly's Jazz playing style has been likened to Thelonius Monk, but she has developed her own distinctive style. She has a full mastery of the piano with a fabulous technique, but more importantly a beautiful lyricism to her playing. She is an incredibly sensitive musician and her ability to adapt to whatever is happening around her is second to none!
