Talking jazz at Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival

Next week’s Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival (26-28 August) features a host of top class musicians including Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams and Nigel Price. Some of the north’s own superstars, and, rising stars, will proudly represent the region – Zoë Gilby for one, the fabulous Durham Alumni Big Band and the dedicated archeologists and archivists collectively known as the New Century Ragtime Orchestra.
Visual artist Dave Barden will be on hand to document whatever takes his fancy, so do take time to view some of his work which will be on show during the festival, and you must make a point of hearing Alyn Shipton – broadcaster, producer, writer, musician –   in conversation with musician and raconteur Alan Barnes. They will be pondering that most intractable question…What is jazz? at four o’clock on Saturday August 27.
Ahead of his visit to Ushaw, Alan Shipton has kindly participated in a Q&A with Bebop Spoken Here…
Russell.
To book your seats for what is sure to be an entertaining conversation between Alyn Shipton and Alan Barnes at Ushaw telephone 0191 334 5119 or visit www.ushaw.org.

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.
