NCRO Tickets now on sale

A quick reminder that tickets are still available for our summer concert on Friday 9 June at Gateshead's Caedmon Hall with our guests, Martin Litton (piano) and Nick Ward (drums), also featuring the New Century's own Caroline on vocals.  
Martin is an internationally renowned pianist, arranger and bandleader, who plays all the classic jazz styles with immaculate precision, and who has recorded with many of the jazz greats including Humphrey Lyttleton and Kenny Ball.  Nick of course is a regular guest with the New Century, probably the country's foremost drummer in the vintage jazz style. 
Tickets (£15) are best reserved in advance from Dave Kerr on  0191 2814011 or at ragtimedavekerr@aol.com, and can be paid for on the night.  Advanced sales permitting, tickets will also be available on the door, which opens at 7 and the show starts at 7.30 pm.  Tickets can also be obtained through the venue's box office on 0191 433 6965 or by clicking this link:
For those who haven't been before, the Caedmon Hall is situated within the Central Library on Prince Consort Road, Gateshead NE8 4LN.  It's an intimate venue with excellent acoustics, bar facilities, disabled access and free parking.
We hope you can join us for another entertaining evening of ragtime, hot dance music and early swing, all anarchically presided over by reedman Steve Andrews!
Phil Rutherford
The New Century Ragtime Orchestra
This twelve-piece orchestra plays music from the dawn of Ragtime in the 1890’s through to the early Swing Era of the 1930’s. Lovingly recreated from the original sheet music and painstakingly scored for full ensemble, we perform not only ragtime composers such as Scott Joplin but also the classic jazz and hot dance music of the 1920’s, and the early swing of Duke Ellington.
