Hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland, Scott Flanigan is one of the foremost keyboard players on the Irish jazz scene. Scott has shared a stage with the likes of Van Morrison and the Ulster Orchestra, along with jazz heavyweights Rob Luft, Ant Law, Jim Mullen, Jean Toussaint and Dave O’Higgins. Scott is also a recognised composer, with recent commissions from Moving On Music and the PRS Foundation.
Equally at home in academia as well as the bandstand, Scott received his BMus degree from Ulster University and his MMus in Jazz Performance from Dublin Institute of Technology. Scott is currently working on a PhD in Jazz Performance at Ulster University, where he is researching, analysing, and synthesising contemporary trends in jazz piano.
Scott is also in demand as a teacher of jazz harmony and improvisation, having delivered workshops across the United Kingdom, and maintains a busy teaching schedule at home in Belfast.
