Alter Ego
This great sextet has six of the North's finest jazz musicians. Since their début performance in 2008, Alter Ego have entertained audiences at many North East jazz venues and festivals. The group draw much of their material from the rich catalogue of original compositions created by the likes of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Hank Mobley and Miles Davis. The result is a stylistically varied programme including Up-tempo Swing, Hard Bop, Funk and Latin Jazz. “The spirit of the Jazz Messengers is with the band from first note to last.” - Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here. 
Sunday 18th May - 8pm - Adm £5.00
James Birkett - Bradley Johnston Jazz Guitar Duo
Once in a while a very young musician comes along who clearly has a special talent. When it happens its a lovely thing to see them progress. Such a case is guitarist Bradley Johnston, a product of The Sage weekend school and now studying for his music degree. This young artist is paired with his mentor, James Birkett, and together they play a complete cross section of jazz guitar history - from Django to Metheny.
