Hailed as one of the most innovative jazz guitarists in Taiwan, Hope Yeh draws influences from European jazz and blends contemporary jazz sounds with elegant sense of humour. Equally prized as a guitarist and composer, Yeh brings about a sound full of warmth, fluency and rhythmic clarity to Taiwan’s jazz scene. In this special performance, Yeh presents a selection of originals and covers of Taiwanese folksongs, alongside guest stars Hsieh Tsung Han on bass and Baron Jan on drums.
Mask-wearing is required for all indoor events. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Hope Yeh is a multi-faceted guitarist, who became a jazzman after obtaining a degree in electrical engineering from National Tsing Hua University and graduating from The Royal Conservatory of Brussels. He has since become a teacher at the Department of Applied Music in the Tainan National University of the Arts and is adding another string to his bow by training as a chiropractor. On the side, he manages the celebrated fan page Jazz Negative Force, which contributes to promoting jazz music. Yeh’s music draws upon his broad and varied life experience to develop multiple layers of emotion with the audience and share his depth of expression.
Hsieh Tsung Han
Hsieh Tsung Han started his classical piano training at a very young age. In his growing years, he developed a strong interest in jazz and pop music which led to him picking up the electric bass at age 16. He eventually pursued his interest and graduated with a Masters degree in Jazz from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in 2019. His music reflects a blend of European and Asian influence, transcending traditional and contemporary jazz sound. Hsieh is currently based in Taiwan as a jazz musician and music educator.
Baron Jan is a drummer from Taipei's up and coming generation of musicians. He first experienced jazz at the age of 13 when he enrolled in Taipei International Summer Jazz Academy (TISJA). In Taipei American School, he joined the high school big band, after which he went to Canada to study music in the University of Toronto and Humber college. Since then, he has accumulated performance experience spanning across a variety of genres and musical settings in both Taiwan and Toronto.
