New Century Update.

Early seasonal greetings from the New Century Ragtime Orchestra
Our annual concert is returning to its original venue at Gateshead's Caedmon Hallon Saturday 2 February 2013. The Caedmon Hall is part of Gateshead Central Library on Prince Consort Road, Gateshead NE8 4LN, and has bar facilities and a large free car park.
Once again we will be featuring our special guests Keith Nichols on piano and Nick Ward on vintage percussion, as well as vocals from Caroline and Keith Stephen on banjo and guitar (now the proud parents of Olivia and Benjamin, who arrived safely in October).
Comedically presented as ever by inimitable reed maestro Steve Andrews, the show starts at 7.30pm, and tickets (£12) are available from band leader Dave Kerr on 0191 281 4011 or ragtimedavekerr@aol.com.
Although tickets may be available on the night, this concert is usually a sell-out and so early reservation is recommended! I hope you can join us for a great evening's entertainment of classic jazz, ragtime and swing music.

The New Century Ragtime Orchestra
This twelve-piece orchestra plays music from the dawn of Ragtime in the 1890’s through to the early Swing Era of the 1930’s.Lovingly recreated from the original sheet music and painstakingly scored for full ensemble, we perform not only ragtime composers such as Scott Joplin but also the classic jazz and hot dance music of the 1920’s, and the early swing of Duke Ellington.
