Coldest Night of the Winter but...

Brian Sibbald, bass; Fred Thompson, drums; Lawrence McBriarty, trombone; Graham Hardy, trumpet and Brian Bennett, banjo
It's the coldest night of the winter, but The Vieux Carré Jazzmen played 'red hot' 1920's jazz at Gibside National Trust's 'Half-Term Hog Roast' barbecue. 
In spite of the intensely cold weather, there was a fantastic turn-out of families and friends to enjoy this popular winter event. 
Watch out for other VCJ events at Gibside later in the year.
