Thomas “Spats” Langham is one of the finest exponents of classic jazz guitar/banjo playing around today.
Born in 1971, Spats was playing ukulele at a very early age. He took up the tenor banjo at the age of 13 with a local band in his native Buxton, Derbyshire, later studying music for two years at college in Manchester. Afterwards he embarked on a career in classic jazz, touring Europe with The Pasadena Roof Orchestra, Sammy Rimington and The Charleston Chasers.
He subsequently worked with Bob Kerr’s Whoopee Band and performs frequently with the world-renowned master of vintage jazz, Keith Nichols.
