About Jan Waterfield:
As principal keyboard player of ‘Gabrieli Consort & Players’, Jan travels throughout Europe & beyond, playing music that ranges from 1585-1801.

She also enjoys playing with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Academy of Ancient Music, the Dunedin Consort & the Scottish Ensemble, as well as her partnerships with colleagues such as László Rózsa & Rory McCleery.

She can sometimes be found playing the piano accordion with an acoustic trio, ‘Kleyne Klezmer’.
