New Venue Way Out West

Gary Stirling has mailed me to tell me that he has opened up a purpose built ‘50s Jazz Club in Greenhead, Brampton. (In Northumberland but with a Cumbrian postcode). Seems as though it’s in an old castle – Blenkinsopp Castle.
2016 dates, so far announced are:
October 8: Swing Manouche w. Daniel John Martin.
November 19: Ruth Lambert Trio.
November 28: Tommaso Starace Quartet.
December 17: Roz Sluman’s Big Shoe Band.

PS: Hopefully the tables in the pic won't be empty on gig nights!
