Yamaha trumpet artist Bobby Shew is to play at the forthcoming Wigan Jazz Festival.

The musician - who has helped to develop the Yamaha YTR6310Z and YTR8310Z trumpets in the past - is to perform with the Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra at the event on July 12th 2010.

Shew and the orchestra are booked to play at the town's Celebration Hall venue.

The musician has been playing the trumpet since the age of ten and his career has seen him play the musical instrument across the world.

He has also spent a considerable amount of time going into schools and universities to conduct workshops and masterclasses.

The Wigan Jazz Festival is to run this year between July 10th and 17th and will open with a performance from the Scottish National Orchestra.

Other acts lined up to play during the event include the Gordon Campbell Big Band, Curtis Stigers and the Gerald Clayton Trio.
