Fireworks @ The Elephant.

Following the huge success of the 20 piece Strictly Big Band this month it’s a small group on the fifth of November. The Virtuoso Jazz Trio features “Dr Jazz” James Birkett on guitar and Tony Abell from the band Alter Ego on bass. Expect a masterclass from the star of the show, Canadian Octogenarian George McDonald. George, as the original principal clarinettist with the Northern Sinfonia, is no stranger to the music of Bach or Benny Goodman. The concert in the Elephant pub starts at 8pm and admission is £5 on the door.
