Monday night in York

There has been a change to next Monday night's gig at York's Phoenix pub. It has been brought forward by one week to tomorrow (Monday March 12). This is due to the fact that Kate Peters and John Marley have been nominated for awards at the Jazz Yorkshire awards which clashed with the original date.
Kate Peters (vcl); John Marley (bs); Eirik Svela (gtr) and Russell Henderson on sax are this week's line-up. Free entry and, I'm told, a great pub.
Kate and John have been fairly regular visitors to the Bridge and to Hoochie recently so we wish them the best of luck with the awards.
Lance.
