Scarborough Jazz Festival

The full Scarborough Jazz Festival Brochure is now available and this - the tenth - looks to be a good one.
Keep the weekend of Sept. 28-30 free it's a must be there event.
Compered as ever by Alan Barnes the list of performers include Claire Martin, Martin Taylor, NYJO, Abram Wilson, Gareth Williams, Darius Brubeck, Matt Wates, Tim Garland, Sarah Ellen Hughes' Sector 7, to name but a few.
In between sets, in the bar, the Jim Birkett Trio will be present with perhaps a guest or two sitting in. Possibly because of the informality of these sessions guitarist Birkett has dropped James in favour of Jim which augurs well for some nice swinging relaxed jazz guitar.
Once again organiser Mike Gordon has delivered the goods all it needs now is for folks to buy tickets which they can do by following this link.
Lance.
