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!

Gig Preview: The Tulip Connection @ Bar Tutsters, Bishop Auckland - Thursday, August 10

This one came in just after the landlord of Bar Tutsters had returned from his holidays. He feared the name, the Francis Tulip Quartet, might put his regulars off, so he renamed them the Tulip Connection.
Readers of BSH aren't put off by Quartets being called Quartets and this is the same group who've drawn rave responses at Newcastle’s Jazz Caff and the Jazz Co-op HQ at the Globe [picture] recently.
With drummer Matthew MacKellar heading off to Berklee in a week’s time, Francis heading back to Birmingham Conservatoire, bass ace Michael Dunlop going back to the Guildhall and Joel Brown back to - would you believe? – school, this will be your last chance to hear the band before Christmas.

Thursday August 10: Bar Tutsters, 37 Forebondgate, Bishop Auckland DL14 7PE. 8pm. Free.
