Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

St Cuthbert’s Durham Beat

(Russell reports/photo courtesy of Hugh C)
Bebop Spoken Here’s Man without Portfolio, Tony Eales, rounds up goings-on at Empty Shop, Ushaw College and a day trip to the Literary and Philosophical Society. Friday: an auspicious occasion, Ushaw College. Paul Edis, commissioned to write a suite for Ushaw College commemorating St Cuthbert and his links with the region, was rewarded with the ‘house full’ signs going up. (See previous post.)
Edis and the Ensemble gave a second performance today (Saturday) in Durham Cathedral at three o’clock.
Friday lunchtime: the Ruth Lambert Trio entertained the Lit & Phil audience. A good few turned out (additional seating on standby). Thursday: Framwellgate Bridge, Durham. The returning Rick Laughlin went to the shop, an Empty Shop. Pianist Laughlin, now residing ‘up north’ following a lengthy spell in London, played to a predominately student crowd at the flourishing Empty Shop enterprise. More from Our Man Eales in the coming weeks.
