Tobin on Tour

Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2014-shortlisted singer Christine Tobin returns to Tyneside in September when she presents her A Thousand Kisses Deep salute to Leonard Cohen at Sage Gateshead in the company of Phil Robson (guitar), Dave Whitford (bass), Huw Warren (piano and accordion) and Adriano Adewale (percussion).
Before that, however, Tobin will be passing through the area, travelling between a gig at the Lescar in Sheffield on May 21 and the opening gig of her first-ever Scottish tour in Aberdeen the following evening. The Scottish tour came as a direct result of Tobin winning a Herald Angel, one of the much coveted awards presented by Glasgow-based newspaper The Herald during the Edinburgh Festival every August for her performance of A Thousand Kisses Deep on the Festival Fringe.
The Scottish tour features Tobin with Robson and Whitford and after Aberdeen, stops off in Dundee (May 23), Dingwall (24), Wick (25), Kilbarchan (27), Edinburgh (28), Dunfermline (29) and Stirling (30). Tobin also appears at Glasgow Jazz Festival in June and Brecon Jazz Festival in August.

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.
