Originally from Canberra, saxophonist Dan Ford followed his passion for jazz and improvised music by studying at the Australian National University’s School of Music, where he was awarded a Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours. Dan has since performed at a wide range of events in Europe, and in Australia, including the Queensland Music Festival, the Jazz Festivals of Meriumbula, Moruya and Townsville, the Canberra International Music Festival with the Canberra Symphony Orchestra, and at jazz clubs across the country.
