|Hello and welcome to a New Year News Roundup
2017 ended with a terrific performance from the Electric Landladies, we’ll be posting videos and photos onto facebook and our website this week, and a wonderful evening from JFrisco and Kathy Dyson/Deirdre Cartwright at the Vortex.
We’re now in the Spring phase of our Tomorrow the Moon season at the Vortex, yes the days are getting lighter and so are we! Deirdre’s on ‘Couch to 5k’ and we’re all running round for the next round of events. ARQ are touring and we have an International Women’s Day event at The Old Church on Friday 9 March featuring one of the world’s greatest cabaret singers – Barb Jung. She’ll be featuring songs from Bob Dylan, Jacques Brel and Leonard Cohen.
So here are four highlights from the season for you:
•Annie Whitehead/Rosie Turton double bill at the Vortex, Thurs 25 January. Two trombone led groups blending jazz with African and Indian influences. BOOK TICKETS
•Claudia Lang-Colmer & Crissy Lee were the double bass player and drummer from the 1950’s and 1960’s Ivy Benson Big Band and can they swing! Thurs 15 Feb Vortex. They’re joined by Ann O’Dell, piano and Alison Cawley sax BOOK TICKETS
Led by Alison Rayner, ARQ feature infectious grooves, lyrical melodies, jazz with folk, rock, classical and other world music influences.
