All Aboard the Tall Ships!

Up to thirty tall ships will visit Blyth over the August bank holiday weekend (Friday 26 – Monday 29). The Port of Blyth is to host the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta. Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to converge on the south Northumberland port to view up close – and in some cases board – some of the biggest vessels in their class. Food and drink, stalls, nightly firework displays and live music are all part of the celebrations.
Jazz will play its part during the weekend ranging from the Dixieland jazz of the Vieux Carré Jazzmen to the Charlie Christian inspired ‘swing jazz guitar’ of local Blyth Valley guitarist Anth Purdy to the biggest of big bands, the Tyne Valley Big Band. See the right-hand column gig list for day-by-day details. It’s all free!

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
