  The Wizard of Oz is coming to the RNCM with Foden's at his side...


At Foden's recent recording session in Manchester with trumpet star Mike Lovatt, 4BR Editor Iwan Fox also took time to find out about the band's forthcoming appearance with 'The Wizard of Oz' — multi-instrumentalist phenomenon James Morrison.

Foden's will perform in concert with the Australian and his jazz quartet on Sunday 15th July at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (7.30pm).

In demand

In demand all over the world, the ensemble was formed in 2015 and has since performed with a plethora of superstars in some of the most iconic venues on the globe — headed of course by the man Wynton Marsalis called 'The Genius'.

On the night Foden's will provide their own unique brand of entertainment as well as accompanying James in a number of solos.
