Alfie Dean is a virtuosic young jazz guitarist from London, currently entering his third year at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Alfie was formerly a member of the London based charity “Tomorrow’s Warriors” before moving to Birmingham and is now working along side Blue Moon Records. Alfie takes a modern approach with regards to his tone and arrangements of classic Jazz standards, while still incorporating the traditions of Bebop and its language within his melodic playing. Alfie’s influences include greats such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Mike Moreno and Peter Bernstein, demonstrating his passion for combining tradition with modern approaches.

He will be accompanied by bassist Ben Love and drummer Aidan Amann, who, like Alfie, both study on the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Jazz Course (Ben in his 2nd year and Aidan in his 3rd).
