Biography of Emily Remembered

Guitarists Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson met in 1984 and realised that they were the only two professional women jazz guitarists in the UK; Over 25 years later they still seem to be the only two.

Emily Remembered invokes the spirit of the late great New York jazz guitarist Emily Remler, who died of heart failure at the age of 32 in 1990.
Their two distinctive voices on the guitar create an intimate guitar sound performing swing, bossa and bop arranged and written by Remler, as well as their own compositions and jazz standards.

Deirdre Cartwright became well known as the guitar presenter on BBCTV’s Rockschool. The two series attracted audiences of 2 million viewers every week in the UK and were subsequently shown worldwide. In the U.S.A. the programmes were introduced by Herbie Hancock.
She was also performing and composing for one of the most successful of the British jazz groups of the 80s, the internationally acclaimed womens jazz group the Guest Stars with whom she recorded three albums and toured in 17 countries.
In 1991 Deirdre formed her own group. The Deirdre Cartwright Group has played extensively in the UK on tours supported by Jazz Services and the Arts Council and has released five albums.
As a solo artist she has played with American guitar legend Tal Farlow, toured with Jamaican composer Marjorie Whylie, and has played throughout Europe. She has also seen the regular jazz club she co-runs Blow the Fuse become one of the most popular in London and has been a regular presenter for BBC Radio 3.

Kathy Dyson is a highly-respected instrumentalist, composer and Professor of music at Leeds College of Music. She has played throughout Europe with saxophonist John Dyson, and plays with Manchester latin jazz group Apitos.
The duo’s first album Emily Remembered was released in February 2011 with a double launch at Band on the Wall Manchester and Ronnie Scotts Club London.
