  1. The Sarah Ellen Hughes Jazz Quartet are appearing at Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Tuesday 29th June at 8pm.
    I realise this venue is out of the way for some but it has a splendid performing area.
    Have had some great evenings there and both Ruth and Zoe G have performed.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
