Calling All Cumbrians

As reported in February, Chicago pianist, Greg Spero plays the London Palladium in a Buddy Rich tribute band on April 2.
In a massive scoop David Gosling has arranged four trio concerts in the north for him.
April 5: Dacre Hall, Lanercost nr. Brampton.
April 7: Zeffirelli's, Ambleside.
April 8: Splinter @ The Bridge, Newcastle.
April 12: Carlisle Jazz Club.
With the American will be Andy Champion on bass and Adrian Tilbrook on drums. For the Lanercost gig the trio will be augmented by Roz Sluman (alto).
Tynesiders will obviously opt for the Splinter gig but over on the other side of the region it is a tremendous and all too rare opportunity for Cumbrians and Lowlanders to catch a top class American talent in intimate surrounds and with three venues to choose from there is no excuse!
Here's a little taste on YouTube.
