About Jon Sanders

Fresh from touring NZ and Europe with his world music band the Alpaca Social Club, Jon Sanders brings his solo show to a few select UK venues this September.

“Deeply meditative, impishly playful and jazz tinged” is how the Irish Times describes Jon Sanders latest album – Zoukelele.

Sounds of Mali to Morocco, gypsy jazz to bluegrass, celtic to contemporary ring out from his critically acclaimed “quantum leaping” mandola playing alongside innovative picked ukeleke soundtracks.

The Ireland/NZ based multi instrumentalist and composer has performed with a multitude of acts including Lord of the Dance musicians, WOMAD and Luminate festivals,  slots on This is Your Life, and regularly tours with five different bands.

His mandola/bouzouki compositions have been featured  in film and TV soundtracks and his innovative ukekele style evokes African and Arabic landscapes.
