Co-led by two Norwich-based musicians - trumpeter Chris Dowding and saxophonist Rob Milne, holding hands is:

Dee Byrne (alto sax & electronics)
Rob Milne (tenor sax & bass clarinet)
Ben Higham (tuba)
Martin Pyne (vibraphone)

Halfway split between Norwich and London, the individual experience brought to holding hands includes Dee Byrne’s work with her quintet Entropi, Raph Clarkson’s groups Resolute and Dissolute Society, and tuba player Ben Higham’s own octet, The Brass Monkeys.
