Let us know whether the weather has affected your gig.

Well, the Beast From the East is here leaving a trail of cancelled gigs behind it. Yesterday we lost the Classic Swing session at the Ship in Monkseaton (thank you Alan Rudd for the update) and the Hexham Jazz Club gig at The Fox (thank you Hazel).
I see, from Facebook that tonight's Take it to the Bridge at The Globe has also fallen foul of the weather.
It would be appreciated if bands, organisers or fans who know of any cancelled gigs keep us informed. The last thing any of us want is folk trudging through the snow only to find an empty stage.
So please update me - lanceliddle@gmail.com.

Hello, everyone!
I'm probably stating the obvious, but today's session at the Crescent Club is cancelled.
Even at the coast pavements are hazardous with snow & ice.

Have a happy 'snowed-in' day!

On the off-chance that anyone was considering braving the weather tomorrow night, just a note that the Steve Andrews Quartet gig at Carlisle Jazz Club on Thursday March 1st, is cancelled due to arctic conditions! Personally, I blame it on the EU..............

Reluctantly we have decided to cancel the gig by Alan Glen Scheduled at The Globe tomorrow night due to the forecast of snow and ice. We will find another date for the Alan Glen Trio as soon as possible.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
