Pat Petrillo

Whether it’s deep pocket funk, swampy roots grooves or creative fills, Pat Petrillo can not only play it with con­vic­tion, but can com­mu­ni­cate it with a deep knowl­edge and pas­sion for teach­ing. He has per­formed and recorded with a wide va­ri­ety of artists in nu­mer­ous gen­res, in­clud­ing singers Glo­ria Gaynor, Patti La­Belle, Con­stan­tine Maroulis, gui­tarist Oz Noy, and many more.

Chris Mans­bridge

Chris has been a keen drum­mer since the ten­der age of 10, and this year marks his 24th year be­hind the kit. Born into pri­mar­ily a punk, rock and me­tal back­ground, Chris’s style and tech­ni­cal abil­ity quickly de­vel­oped and soon branched out into the world of pop, funk, blues and world mu­sic. He’s cur­rently play­ing with UK me­tal out­fit Heart Of A Coward.

Chris is a sea­soned player with a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence; and when he isn’t play­ing, he is a full-time ed­u­ca­tor at the Rhythm Room mu­sic school in his home town of Mil­ton Keynes.

Colin Wool­way

Reg­u­lar read­ers of these pages will be fa­mil­iar with our very own Mr Wool­way, who has taught thou­sands of drum­mers through his Drum­sense pro­gramme and his long-run­ning Rhythm columns. You can catch Colin do­ing what he does best live on the Ed­u­ca­tion Stage at 14:00 on Sun­day 11th Novem­ber.

Oli Wise­man

Oli Wise­man has toured the world, per­form­ing some of the big­gest venues on the planet as the live drum­mer for Anne-Marie. His ap­proach to repli­cat­ing elec­tronic beats live us­ing a hy­brid acous­tic/elec­tronic setup de­fines the role of a ses­sion drum­mer in 2018. Oli will be per­form­ing on the Ed­u­ca­tion Stage at 12:15 on Sun­day 11th Novem­ber.
