New Venue Way Out West

Gary Stirling has mailed me to tell me that he has opened up a purpose built ‘50s Jazz Club in Greenhead, Brampton. (In Northumberland but with a Cumbrian postcode). Seems as though it’s in an old castle – Blenkinsopp Castle.
2016 dates, so far announced are:
October 8: Swing Manouche w. Daniel John Martin.
November 19: Ruth Lambert Trio.
November 28: Tommaso Starace Quartet.
December 17: Roz Sluman’s Big Shoe Band.

PS: Hopefully the tables in the pic won't be empty on gig nights!

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.
