It's a Trad Day Today!

Today isn't just a Bank Holiday - if you're a Trad fan then it is the Bank Holiday!
Over on the north sde of the river we have two sessions stomping under the Jazz in the Afternoon banner.
Firstly we have the band of the same name strutting their stuff at their regular Monday lunchtime session at Cullercoats Club (1pm) then, just along the coast, the Vieux Carré Jazzmen are entertaining commuters and daytrippers on Tynemouth Station (1-4pm.).
In the evening we move south of the river to the Customs House in South Shields where West Yorkshire's top classic jazzmen - the Savannah Jazz Band  - take to the stage at 7.45pm.
The band, which features Roger Myerscough on clarinet (no stranger to this area) have a pedigree too lengthy to list here so I suggest a visit to their website to discover what's in store for you tonight!.
