About Beccy Rork
Beccy Rork is a saxophonist, teacher and arranger living in East Sussex.
She began playing in Blues, Funk and Soul bands in Norwich, and went on to study Jazz, Popular and Contemporary Music at Leeds College of Music, where she played tenor and alto saxophone, clarinet and flute in a variety of ensembles, from duo to big band and in many different genres.
Beccy toured extensively through France during the summer months with the Moliendo Café Trio (double bass, guitar and saxophone), and her melodic style and warm tone have been likened to that of Paul Desmond, Art Pepper and Bud Shank.
She has since gone on to perform regularly throughout the UK and Europe with a myriad of artists, and has recorded for radio, television and Sky, as well as a project with D Palmer of Jethro Tull fame.
She has also performed at Festivals such as Love Supreme, Chidfest and the Brighton and Edinburgh Festivals.
Beccy has played for many weddings and special events, from solo with backing tracks, to duos, trios, quartets or larger groups to include guitar, piano, bass, drums, vocals and trumpet. She plays regularly with an established (9 years) Wedding function band based in Brighton.
