We played concerts in Dalton & Gayles Memorial Hall, near Richmond and in Hutton-le-Hole in the North Yorkshire Moors. Very scenic countryside and a very warm reception form everyone. Here’s some pics:
A very enjoyable concert at Uig Hall near Dunoon. Beautiful location for a hall!
Here’s some pics from the trip.
We thoroughly enjoyed playing at Caddonfoot Hall in the Scottish Borders last night. Very friendly, listening audience. Great acoustics in the hall.
Here’s a selection of photos from our journey back home via Glenfinnan, Fort William and Glencoe:
We had a fantastic few days in Ardnamurchan last weekend. With two very enjoyable concerts at The Sunart Centre in Strontian and Glenuig Village Hall.
We met some very nice people and the weather was gloriously sunny (although very cold at night). This is our job – although trips like this often feel more like we are on holiday! Fantastic!
We saw deer, buzzards, mountain goats, Llamas (!), pigs (!). Here’s some pics from our trip:
This is a good interview with Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone), who has been forced to retire at 87 years young, due to being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Its very sad. He is one of my heroes and still has a lot to offer:
Unfortunately, our concert in Innellan near Dunoon tomorrow is postponed due to the weather conditions. It is being re-scheduled for a later date. Those who bought tickets for tomorrow will be able to use them for the new date. Go to our website for updates:
Concert now re-scheduled for Sat 22nd September 2018
We performed a concert in Arrochar this weekend (top of Loch Lomond then turn left at Tarbert). The venue, a beautiful purpose built hall, only 7 years old, was on the banks of Loch Long. It was fantastic to drive there, up the length of Loch Lomond in glorious sunshine.
What a magical experience, to come out of the venue at the end of the concert, and hear the oyster catchers on the loch just yards away, and look up at the crisp, clear night sky and get a perfect view of Orion and The Winter Triangle!
We always want to encourage young people and families to see us perform, so wherever possible we will not charge accompanied under 16s. This applies to the EdFringe too, although it is not possible to do this through their box office very easily.
If you want to come and see us play anywhere (inc The EdFringe), please feel free to email us through our website and we will make sure that your accompanied under 16s don’t have to pay (wherever possible) – we can put complimentary tickets for them on the door.
We feel that it is important to allow children to hear jazz at an early age – they might find that they enjoy it! We also don’t want families to be put off coming to see us because it costs too much for tickets for their children.
Its also important for any children who are learning to play musical instruments, to see as much live music as possible.
Tickets for our show “Jazz at Lunchtime” in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe are now on sale! We’ve managed to keep the ticket price the same for a number of years now at just £8. They can be purchased here:
We are performing at 12.30pm every day from Friday 3rd August to Monday 27th August at The Novotel, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh.
