Greg Spero gigs this weekend

One of our favourite visitors is the American pianist Greg Spero who’s made several appearances in and around these northern parts. Although Greg’s currently on tour with [quote] US pop sensation Halsey, he has managed to shoehorn a couple of concerts in between gigs with the aforementioned young lady. Unfortunately, they are northwest rather than northeast this time around although Lanercost isn’t too far away.
The gigs are as follow:
Sat Sept 12: Dacre Hall, Lanercost, Brampton, Cumbria CA8 2HQ 7.30pm, tickets £10 call 016977 41829 to book a ticket
Sun Sept 13: The Continental, Preston 7.30pm, tickets £10 go to www.newcontinental.net
It's a UK trio with him, all well-known at either side of the Pennines:  Greg Spero – piano; Roz Sluman – saxophone; John Pope – bass; Russ Morgan – drums.
Lance.
