Seasons Greetings from the New Century Ragtime Orchestra!

This cold weather can’t last forever, can it? Hopefully not, as the NCRO have their customary concert at Gateshead Old Town Hall on Saturday, 22 January 2011 featuring as usual piano maestro Keith Nichols (London) and vintage percussionist Nick Ward (Birmingham) along with NCRO stalwarts Caroline Irwin on cornet and vocals and Keith Stephen on banjo and guitar (all the way from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea).
As ever, the show is presented by our inimitable saxophonist Mr Steve Andrews (from a mystery location in darkest Cumbria) and the show starts at 7.30pm.
Gateshead Old Town Hall is a great venue with a bar, café and free parking nearby, and it would be splendid to see you there if you can make it.
Tickets (£12) are available from Dave Kerr on 0191 281 4011 or or the venue’s box office on 0191 433 6965 – even on the door, perhaps, if there are any left!
With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
Phil Rutherford
(The New Century Ragtime Orchestra)

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.

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 all of them 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.
